App being removed 10 minutes after creation

apps.twitter.com

#1

Hi all.

When I create an app I am able to use it for about 10 minutes and it then it ceases to exist. I’m using it to scrape for a particular hashtag and using the php oauth library.

My steps are these:

  1. Create the app.
  2. Get the access tokens.
  3. I then make a couple of queries like :
    $content = $connection->get(“search/tweets”, array(“q” => “programming”));
  4. It works the first couple of times and then I get a message saying “Could not authenticate you.”
  5. I go back to my app page to see what’s going on and it’s no longer there. (See for example : https://apps.twitter.com/app/8813539).

What’s going on? Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks.

I’m getting the exact same thing I thought I was doing something wrong as it’s been a while since I’ve done this but like you I get about one test out of the app from the CMS I’m using then errors and when I go back to check my app on twitter it says I have none!

Glad it’s not just me! Mysteriously the first app that I created how now come back and works consistently. Going to have to monitor this. Have yours come back?

I have the same issue and this is hugely annoying. I created like 5 apps and they all disapeared.

All of the apps I attempted to create on Friday have now appeared. That means I’m all set, but others may still be having problems creating new apps.
