A scenario for justifying invalidateToken:
- User visits AwesomeApp and wants to connect his Twitter account
- AwesomeApp redirects to Twitter's OAuth flow
- User fails to notice that someone else, UserX, is already logged in to
Twitter in the current browser and clicks through
- AwesomeApp detects (somehow, perhaps later) that the wrong Twitter user
is connected. They can be a good citizen and revoke the token completely,
then send the user back through a full OAuth flow that asks for
username/password regardless of sign-in state.
Just my $0.02,
