Spurious “Lifestream Event” tweets

If you’re wondering about the “Lifestream Event” tweets which keep appearing in my Twitter stream … well, so am I! I don’t know what’s causing them; it’s not a new plugin (because they’ve not changed in weeks); I thought it might be a problem with it polling for Google+ updates, so I’ve disabled that feed but I’ve just seen another tweet. I’ll keep trying to debug this but if anyone has tracked down this problem please let me know.

  1. I’ve tried changing my Twitter password, but it’s still happening.

    I’ve also de-authorised a number of apps which had permission to access my Twitter stream, and that’s not fixed it either.

    Still bemused! šŸ™

  2. Just over a day since I disabled the plugin and no new “event” in my Twitter stream; meanwhile another blog where I’ve left the plugin enabled has seen 2 “event” tweets. I think I might be on the right track.

    Update: 2 days; 0 in this blog/Twitter stream, but 3 in the other.

  3. Another update: 5 days; 0 in this blog/Twitter stream, but 8 in the other; I think I’ve found the culprit.

    Lifestream plugin is now deactivated in both blogs; if I don’t see any more spurious tweets over the next few days, then that plugin is gone for good and I’ll be looking for an alternative plugin.
