    Web http://yoursite.example.com/

  3. When you use your personal site with web sign-in the first time, your browser will redirect you to to your online profile, e.g. Twitter, and ask you to:
    • Sign-in with your account on that profile (e.g. sign in to Twitter) if you're not already signed-in.
    • Authorize the site to use your account, e.g. your Twitter account:

      Authorize Site to use your account?
