Twitter Doesn't Work

Post by BKelley56 » 2019-10-12, 11:04

Good morning.

Yesterday I tried logging in to my Twitter account and it gave me a message I've never seen before: "Something went wrong, try again"

I can't get this message to go away no matter what I tried, Flash Protected Mode, clearing the cache/history, CNTL/F5, nothing.

Has anyone else run into this, and if so, how did you fix it?

Thanks

Did you check for blocked cookies, or an adblock filter gone bad? uBlock Origin and nMatrix both have a log showing what was blocked - don't block stuff from twitter.com and subdomains, particularly platform.twitter.com.

Used twitter today without issues, so doesn't seem global.

This happens to me whenever I use a mobile browser.
Doesn't matter if it's Chrome or Firefox, I always have to refresh at least once before it works.
I'm not logged in as I don't have an account and it still happens.
However, I don't have to do anything on Pale Moon, aside unblocking scripts if I want to see particularitly old messages or videos.

This must be the problem. I turned off the Adblock and refreshed the screen, and voila, it works. I'll do some more checking with it and find out what's causing the problem. Thanks for the suggestion.
