/account/verify_credentials.json suddenly stopped working


Our application lets users publish which concerts they are attending to Twitter. Last week, our ‘Connect to Twitter’ flow and our post-to-Twitter code stopped working.

What seems to be the problem is that this call no longer works:

$ curl -i ‘http://twitter.com:80/account/verify_credentials.json’ -H ‘Authorization: OAuth oauth_nonce=“gBYTVaQ7tNciQEy6mnz3lEwFzdQCoWoN7osZ4nz7mQ”, oauth_signature_method=“HMAC-SHA1”, oauth_timestamp=“1350394822”, oauth_consumer_key=“ekwTqrvEgVK6PfEeon1pAA”, oauth_token=“13861042-hdSU8O26PjXpYrAvm4cwvG0fc1OVeBHufZQXOUr2Z”, oauth_signature=“xbrSBDy2LBFfFDUq%2Bcng2ER7rK4%3D”, oauth_version=“1.0”’

It returns a 404. If you omit the Authorization header, you get a 401. Can someone shed some light on this?


Hi there,

You’ve been bitten by the recent deprecation and retirement of “unversioned” API endpoints.

See this FAQ question for more information:


What URL should I be using? I did try using api.twitter.com/1/account/verify_credentials.json but I get exactly the same responses.


same problem was fixed when i using this url:


The Twitter REST API v1 is no longer active. Please migrate to API v1.1. https://dev.twitter.com/docs/api/1.1/overview.
Hello to all
I have an application that does not work now chamando this link https://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.rss?screen_name=AcquaVivaKangen
and from this error
The Twitter REST API v1 is no longer active. Please migrated to API v1.1. https://dev.twitter.com/docs/api/1.1/overview.

how can I fix it?


RSS is no longer a supported option in the Twitter API and the API also now requires authentication for all requests. You probably can’t fix what you already have but instead need to move on to something different. [node:10248] is our simplest replacement for viewing a specific user’s tweets on another website.


ok thanks for the reply
but to pass Embedded Timelines how should I do?
I only have a link that I did everything
