Trouble Authorizing (logging into) Accounts in Twitterrific (iOS and macOS)

I'm having trouble logging in or authorizing an account. How can I fix it?

If you are seeing a message such as "this account is unauthorized" then, you need to go to the accounts panel in Twitterrific (open the sidebar on iOS, or check in the app prefs on macOS), remove the account that is having problems, and re-add it. This will go through the usual OAuth sign-in process with Twitter to reauthorize it.

On the other hand, if you're having problems with the web-based OAuth authorization process itself, there are a few things you can try:

  1. Make sure you disable any third party ad blockers you may have running in Safari as well as turn off "Block all pop-ups". You must also have cookies enabled. If cookies are disabled you won't be able to log into Twitter to authorize properly.

  2. Make sure the time/date and time zone are set correctly on your device. If they're off, OAuth won't let you authorize.

  3. Make sure you don't have multiple copies of Twitterrific on your device. If you have an older copy, delete it. OAuth can get confused when multiple copies exist.

  4. Make sure you're running the latest version. If you are not, delete Twitterrific and download it fresh from the App Store.
