OK, did a quick search of the forum and didn't find anyone with a similar problem, but anyway. I first tried to install the official Twitter app about a week ago and could not get it to let me sign in. Every time I try I get the "username and password could not be verified" error. I know for a fact that the log in info is correct as I have verified and tried it dozens of times. I have uninstalled and reinstalled ad nauseum and even followed all the troubleshooting tips on Twitter's own help page for the WP app. Feel like I've tried just about everything, so any suggestions?
I'm not sure I'm following you. As in what do you mean by desktop account? Are you referring to when I log in to Twitter in my web browser?
Edit: Just went and looked at the application settings in Twitter. There is no listing for Twitter for Windows Phone (guessing that's because I was never able to log in with it), so that's a no go. Thanks for the suggestion though.
I have the login problem, nothing helped. Date is correct, tried revoking permissions, reinstall apps etc.. I can log in with the OS into twitter but not with the twitter app. Cant login to tumblr apps as well..
Any new ideas for solutions?
Hi, I was having the exact same issue as OP. Turns out it's because I turned on the text-messaging safety feature from the official twitter website, meaning I had to follow these steps:
Go to Settings (from the corkscrew at the top right) on the Twitter website online, then go to Apps, and then make sure that your twitter application has access enabled (access isn't revoked) and then click on Generate above that to generate a temporary password which you can then log in to your twitter mobile app with.
And fyi I logged in with my email and the temporary password, just in case you thought the problem was an incorrect username or that you couldn't log in with your email.
Hope my instructions were somewhat clear and can help anyone still facing this issue. Good luck!
