Why does Block Party ask for so many permissions from Twitter?

Because of how the Twitter API bundles their permissions, the only way that Block Party can get access to mute and block functionality is to request the highest level of access, which comes with a long list of other permissions. It's unfortunately more than we'd like to ask for, but our core service depends on being able to mute and block through the API. We are continuing to watch for updates to the API and plan to minimize requested permissions when possible.
