I had to change my twitter password so that instagram accepted it. My old password contained special characters, probably the twitter api or instagram didn't like. After changing it - it works. If that's a bug on twitter's side i still want to point this out for people who might have the same problem - the char i used was "&"

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Unfortunately, in V1.0, we have a bug that causes Instagram to crash when trying to connect a third-party service (twiter, foursquare, etc.) if the password you're using for that service contains an ampersand (&). We'll have a fix for this in our next version. For now, if you want to connect to one of these services, you'll need to make sure that your password for that service doesn't contain an ampersand. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience, and again, we promise to have a fix for this in the next version.

I am having the same issue except my password does not have an & in it. It does have several other special characters: # ~ etc. Just thought I'd make you aware this isn't limited to the &.

Agreed... I don't have an ampersand and I'm still having trouble.

I can't connect to my twitter account from my iPhone, weirdly I don't have a problem with the version on my iPad. I have tried changing the password but it still doesn't work. Help please.

Same thing here :
I can perfectly set sharing login & password on tumblr (& twitter) on the ipad, but not on the ipod touch.
