Twitter application

I downloaded the twitter application a couple of weeks ago, everything worked fine for a few days. I logged in using the credentials I use online and was able to tweet and receive tweets. However after a few days it stopped updating, and I wasn't able to tweet anymore. I got an error "cannot connect to server" ''twitter encountered a problem" I didn't think much about it, putting it down to the system being busy. A day later I tried again and got the same errors, so being in IT I tried the age old remedy and logged out with the intent to log back in, however when I typed in my username and password, I got an error your username and password combination are incorrect. Knowing that was impossible but willing to try again I typed everything out again, paying close attention to every letter and number typed. Again I got the same error, once or twice it changed to cannot connect to server, but mostly that my credentials were wrong.

 

I even went so far as to try and create a new username, having typed four letters I got an error "username cannot be longer that 15 characters" after much fighting I managed to type out my user name (samcarter1022) and put in my password, when I clicked submit I got "creation failed"

 

I sent a request in to twitter, as I am able to login in online it doesn't seem that the issue is with them, they advised to conact Blackberry, so here I am, what do I do now???

Re: Twitter application

My first suggestion would be to reboot the device:  With the BlackBerry device powered ON, remove the battery a few seconds and then reinsert the battery to reboot.

 

Let me know how that goes, if it doesn't work then.

Do a simple reboot on the BlackBerry in this manner: With the BlackBerry device POWERED ON, remove the battery for a minute, and then reinsert the battery to reboot. A reboot in this manner is prescribed for most glitches and operating system errors, and you will lose no data on the device doing this.

 

Now, try Twitter again.

Re: Twitter application

Mates,

 

I upgraded my twitter widget to version 4.3.0.18. After the upgrade my "mentions' tab stopped working. I re-intalled the widget, re-booted/har re-booted the device many times but the problem remains the same. Is there a fix/solution to this problem?

By widget, I assume you mean the application?

 

Give it another day and see if your mentions start working. Are old mentions listed, or is the mention tab completely blank?

Re: Twitter application

I had to reinstall the twitter application on my Bold 9900.  I can't tweet anything with a photo from my Blackberry.  I get an error message saying there is a connection problem.  I can tweet without photos from my BB and I can attach photos from my PC, but that's really inconvenient as I have to transfer photos first and it takes away my ability to tweet photos while mobile.  Can you please help?
