Today a certain twitter app for Android started having problems, so I uninstalled and then reinstalled it.
However, when I went to the Twitter account authentication page, an error message of the following kind was displayed.
“Sorry, please try again later.
This application cannnot authenticate more users at this time.”
In addition, even when I login from this page’s “Sign in”, I end up being transferred to a similar page.
What exactly is going on here?
I read in the article below that an app that has exceeded 100,000 users cannot add users, but is the system set up so that existing users also can’t re-authenticate?
This means that if I reinstall an app or switch it to a new device, I will never be able to use that app again.
Could you please look at the specification once more?
If I don’t have this app then my opportunities to look at Twitter will be greatly reduced.
Unfortunately I expect that many apps will be restricted the same way in the future, but would you at least allow me keep using an app that has permitted authentication once?
Oh, dear Twitter, I don’t want you to become evil.
