403 error on creating new official widget



When I try to create a new widget from https://twitter.com/settings/widgets/new , I get a “403 Forbidden: The server understood the request, but is refusing to fulfill it.” when I hit the “Create widget” button.

That happens for every widget (Timeline, favorites, list, search) even with the default values.

Thank you,
