I use TweetDeck because it's the only workable way to manage multiple Twitter accounts.
Recently it has been crashing a lot. It crashes at pretty random times, but only occasionally when Tweetdeck is the front app. It doesn't usually crash when I'm scrolling down the list. Usually it crashes when some other app is selected, like when I've clicked a link and it opens in Safari.
But now I've noticed that it most often crashes when I'm in Safari, haven't used Tweetdeck at all recently, and I open or close a Safari window... Right then is when Tweetdeck crashes. Exactly then.
So now I suspect that Tweetdeck is using AppleScript to monitor all the URLs I load in Safari, and presumably is phoning home with them.
Anyone know how to prove, monitor or prevent this? I don't know how you'd log or MITM AppleScript IPC.
This behavior would not be unprecedented for such an ethical and trustworthy company as Twitter: remember when they got busted phoning home with all of the applications installed on your iPhone to "better improve your advertising experience"? Yeah, they'd totally do this.
