Hi Brian

Have collected the file for your interpretation. Must be the same for the new Twitter account I set up too.

I'm away about 15:00 GMT Friday

Regards

Richard

Hi Brian

Reading online about Twitter authentication issues, I have subsequently cleared autocomplete caches in IE11 and Firefox hoping that might resolve the issue in view of the results in the debugging log, but it still hasn't made any difference. It looks as though this is where the issues lay, but I have used the Twitter ID exactly as it appears in the account and with the appropriate password. I'm flumoxed!  :roll:

the ID and password in the twitter setup in WD is not important
what is important is entering the correct ID and password in the authoristion window that shows up
this error
 Could not authenticate you
to me means you are not entering the correct ID and password in that window maybe?

I will do a test here of a new twitter account setup

Hi Brian

There is some confusion between Twitter ID and Twitter Username. For Twitter Registration I've used RichardTyler11. If you look up that registration, on Twitter, you're given a long number which is called Twitter ID.  I've tried that as well all to no avail. I even created a new Twitter account and the same happened with that.. just won't authorise. I've changed my password back to the original and still nothing. I can't make head nor tail of it.

Regards

Richard

you should be using the login details you use to log into twitter.com (username/password)
in the authorise window from the WD setup

I will do a test on a new twitter account sign up

Hi Brian and et al. I was not able to resolve this issue until a few days ago when I did a reinstall of Windows 10 because of a major networking issue and the problem resolved itself with a simple log back into Twitter. Something must have screwed up way back when and the reinstall of WD and W.10 fixed it! Hey ho I'm now 3 years older but none the wiser!

the deleting of the twitter.ini probably was the trick

It seems that Facebook has again update its API for retweeting, and it no longer works.  :(

The green box at the top explains it.

Use iftt.com and use the twitter to fb applet, works 100%
