Twitbird 2.6 doesn't work

  • Problem
  • Updated 5 years ago
Twitbird 2.6 doesn't connect to twitter and doesn't update. Its completely unusable right now. It says it cant connect to twitter or im logged out.. Re-adding Accounts and re install twitbird didnt help. Any suggestions?
I was really excited about the New update and wanted to buy global push but not if the whole App doesn't work anymore.

See this link for more on the subject. Likely not a Twitbird problem. http://status.twitter.com/

Well, I see it's not only twitbird problem. I cannot login through other iPhone twitter apps too (I have Twitterific and Twittelator also installed). It seems to be some problem of the twitter itself

I tried too! It's not working for me either. I even removed my account and tried to re-add it and it won't add my account.

Hello,

We've noticed this issue and we think we've found what's going on. It's twitter. Please read this post: http://blog.nibirutech.com/2010/07/wh...

Still does not work, at all.

ALL other Twitter Apps work fine.

how about address the fix since many people LOVE this and paid 4.99 for it?

very unprofessional to blame others such as Twitter

Hi Gillan, it's not twitbird, it's twitter. Many mobile apps are affected in different ways, and very sorry twitbird is one of the "many". We are sorry.

It's not Twitbird folks. Twitter is having many issues currently. This is documented all over the Internet. Keep an eye on http://status.twitter.com.

no it is not recovered. we tested on v2.5 which used to work very well. It's not working in oauth way, but in basic auth, which proves it's not recovered. Sorry.

Dear Twit Pro, This is really the problem with your latest update 2.6. I deleted this version and using your older ver and it works fine without any issues. I am not going to update until you provide a new fix. Pls provide a fix asap. We all are waiting. I double checked and Twitter is working Fine and TwitBird Pro older ver also working fine.

Hi, twitbird v2.5 is working in basic auth, not oauth. this is too tech, maybe I should put it this way: twitter said they will adopt a new kind of authorization method in middle july called oauth and abandon basic auth. They failed in the transfer, many twitter apps ain't working properly in oauth in this transfer. So twitter said they will support basic auth a little more longer, that's why twitbird v2.5 is working, in basic auth way.

App still barley works.

Still going to blame Twitter?

Doesn't auto refresh, sends tweets more than once, or not at all.
speaks saying "NO NEW TWEETS" constantly.

it's been 3 or 4 days, Twitter blogged that their issues were fixed the night of the app being updated, yet you still blamed Twitter.

Fix it, please. Many of us paid the 4.99 because it was an amazing App, now it's like using windows or something else that never works.

I don't understand why everyone is having problems. I don't have problems. My works just fine. However, when my wife updated her phone, it wouldn't load any new tweets. So I just removed her twitter account from Twitbird, restarted the phone, added her account back, and it works.

I am, however, having a problem with updating my photo through Twitbird. I finally decided to just go through twitter's website and it worked fine.

Done that, still mediocre compared to 2.5.

Why should we all have to delete and reinstall this app with every update?

It's so unprofessional.
