Can't add the Twitter FB application b/c it won't let me log in. Says "Oops! Something went wrong: Invalid credentials Invalid user name or password" but I can log into Twitter just fine. Just not through facebook...

^No We need Twitter to Facebook not Facebook to Twitter

Hey Guys I found this alternative app. It's work great for me!> http://apps.facebook.com/selectivetwi... (but It has 2-3 min. delay before tweets will be on your facebook status)

Thanks RK but it is kind of annoying that you have to put that #FB marker at the end. developers got lazy there.

Excuse me, so you have any better idea then??

It's better than just sit back and do nothing. My comment is not the solution it's just an alternative way.

"Selective Twitter" app works from Twitter to FB. Some of the users do not want this facility.

"Twitter" app works from FB to Twitter and this is our topic today.

Stancato, you have to delete your "Twitter" app at your Twitter A/C and then restart another new Twitter app again.

This way worked for me !

I think you are misunderstanding
This app> http://apps.facebook.com/twitter is called "Twitter" and it works "Twitter to FB" which you can either tweet from the application page on fb or from Twitter.com or from any twitter clients and it will automatically update your status on Facebook when you tweeted from Twitter and "Selective Twitter" works the same way with "Twitter" but you just can't tweet from the application page

This is so frustrating. I've been using the Twitter application as part of my social media networking for my business. Twitter is not only linked to our Facebook page, but also to our Web site as a running news feed. I tried selective tweets, which worked for FB, but the #hashtag did not go away on the site, so that one is out.
I would try to use some desktop application like Seesmic to link all of these things together; however, we have multiple employees who text tweets from their phones...

I've tried removing the application and reinstalling it, but it still says that I'm providing "invalid credentials" when I try to log into it from FB. I hope someone finds a solution, fast!

I've had this problem for a few weeks now. I've tried removing and readding in every possible combination without any luck. I started using another app, which worked fine for some time but now suddenly stopped working. I now can't link my account any way, which means I'm double posting everything.

Twitter is aware of the problem, and actively working on a solution:

That is similar, but does not accurately describe the problem we are experiencing. We specifically get error messages rejecting our logins - "Invalid credentials Invalid user name or password". That help topic talks more about a blank page.

The article then goes on to suggest a heap of pointless activities that achieve no results, and that we try another application because Twitter couldn't be bothered fixing the original problem. MY problem is, while the application they suggested work at first, it's now stopped and I'm completely screwed.

In addition, that article was created December 2009. Nearly FIVE months later we've been strung along with baseless updates and to this date: no complete solution has been delivered.

Why can't a seemingly simple problem be resolved in FIVE months of investigating? Twitter isn't a company of one or two distracted programmers chasing each other on office chairs in their mother's garage... They're a company with an expanding array of staff, with hundreds of millions of users around the world! We're sick of waiting Twitter! Do something!

@CutOutDeals - To get your WP blog to post to Twitter and Facebook, check out this WP plugin - http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/s...

Please don't continue this discussion in this thread though as it is separate from the topic.

Not for me. Selective Twitter installs fine and doesn't give errors, but it fails to pull in any tweets. It just doesn't work for me at all. (and yes, I'm using the #fb hashtag)

You need to unsecure your tweets for ST to work. i.e your tweets shouldn't be protected
