Twitter authorisation failure
Posted on by davidjennings Posted in
When setting up Twitter Access I keep getting a Twitter authorisation failure:
Please be aware that if you are logged into multiple Google accounts authentication may fail. You can either log out of other Google accounts or use an incognito window.
Oops something went wrong. Twitter says:Failed to validate oauth signature and token”
I wasn’t logged into multiple Google accounts, but just to be sure I repeated the process on different browsers, including an incognito window. Same outcome every time. Any clues as to what might be going wrong? Thanks!
Hi David – usual issue is something amiss in your Twitter API settings. Check your api key settings on dev.twitter.com and make sure the callback url is in the right field (this is an optional field and different to the website url field)
Thanks! I mistakenly copied a leading space in the API keys – doh!
Ah I should really trim whitespace on those fields. Thanks for letting me know what the issue was.
