Facebook Twitter App Posts to Profile Without Permission

I joined Twitter after I joined Facebook. When I first joined Twitter I thought it would be a good idea to have my tweets post as a status on Facebook. That decision was quickly reversed when I began to realize I was using the two applications for two different purposes and also had two (almost) completely different user groups as friends (followers).

So, I was surprised to find out today when I posted a tweet that all of sudden I was getting emails about my friends commenting on my Facebook status. Turns out, the Facebook Twitter app decided it was going to start publishing my tweets to my Facebook profile. Thankfully, I was able to disable this option from within the Twitter application settings.

However, why did this happen in the first place? Was this functionality recently updated within the Facebook Twitter app? Or was my previous setting accidentally overturned? No harm. Just annoying.
