Changing my applications access settings breaks login


After changing the access level from read to read and write, when a user visits the site and clicks to login via twitter, it correctly redirects to the Twitter authorize this application page and shows the updated access level. When a user clicks “Sign in” the page simply refreshes and does not continue back to the site.

Any thoughts on what may be happening. This only seems to affect users who have connected with Twitter before. It does not go to the “Redirecting back to your application” page.

Revoking access to the app manually allows for the user to log back in.


I’m having this problem too… I guess this is not practical if you are upgrading your application from just ‘Read’ to ‘Read + Write’, if you have a large user base this would be a real problem…

I’m assuming the alternative is to create a new application, prompting all users to authorise the (new) app (again) which brings its own set of problems depending on your set up.
