hey guys for some reason when i boot up or install any twitter client on my macbook the username and password i enter (even though i know are correct), are being rejected when the client syncs with twitter. this then results in a lockout from twitter because it thinks someone is trying to force enter my account, and i have to do a password reset. annoying.

this has happened with tweetdeck and twitterific, and on both occasions i have made sure to log out from twitter before booting up.

any ideas on a fix? thanks heaps :)

It happened with DestroyTwitter as well. It was because Twitter changed the API without telling anyone. So the developers had to push out an update for it to work again.

I haven't encountered anything like that, on either the Mac or iPhone variants of Twitterific.

yeah its really weird. i mean i would've thought that twitterific would have been up to date with the API. obviously not...
