For some reason my twitter account won't authenticate
« on: November 02, 2011, 01:34:57 PM »
Anybody else having this problem??? I have the right username and credentials as they work on the web and in the iPad twitter app. However, I try to share something on twitter through feedHopper, and I get an Authentication Error.

TIA
Howard

Im not able to replicate this.  Are you using iOS 5? Perhaps your password or user name has a character that must be escaped.  Ill look deeper before posting a fH update.

Howard,

Could not replicate it but I have a suggestion for you.  Have you tried resetting feedHopper's authentication settings?  Its under the main settings dialog, select 'social setup' on the left.  There is only one option and its called 'Reset Credentials'.  Pressing the little play button there will reset all social accounts and cookies.

Then, retry twitter and we will prompt you fresh for your user and password.

If that helps let me know
