    Over the past few months, it seems a lot of apps' newer versions have been adding this ("Discover Known Accounts") to the list of required permissions when they'd never required it for years. Anyone know what it's for, or why so many have started requiring it now? I don't need Facebook knowing my Twitter account, or Tumblr knowing my Google account... is that what all this is for?
