  1. The article was written more than a year ago, so many things has changed since then. We mean the overall display, navigation of Twitter. For now, you can't change Twitter profile picture via mobile or any mini browsers, but you can still revoke apps permission, check analytics (if you're a webmaster), and do some certain things following the tutorial.

    Accessing twitter "web" still works.
