Twitter login (twitter sites are unhelpful)

Logging in to twitter gives this error, in box overlaying the login section.

"The request is understood, but it has been refused"

There is no button to click for more explanation, nor an error code - which twitter sites suggest should be there.


Twitter related sites suggest a security setting change [options, security, adv secuirty, TLS, Proxy TLS] they say change the tick box to "unticked".  There is no tick currently there, nor can i put a tick or delete whatever may or may not be there.  It is a tick box which I cannot change.


There is enough phone memory, I follow maybe 15 publishers (newspapers, a few sites, writers, some economic) I seldom tweet, generally login / logout when I want to read - is not "on" all the time.  I could get about 150 max a day.
