Why you shouldn't give away your password

So, you want to embed details of you Twitter, or Facebook, or <insert flavour of the month here> account on you blog. There's a widget that will do this (in fact the widget is the only way to do this) and 'all' you need to give it is you user name and password. You are using a blog provided by a big well known provider so of course you can trust them not to misuse your credentials. What can possibly go wrong?
