Platform.twitter.com redirect


#1

We have a twitter feed embedded into a landing page for wifi networks. Ever since IOS7, the page fully loads and then is redirected to platform.twitter.com

Anyone else seeing this?


#2

Does not do this on Android platforms.


#3

Recreated the widget to make sure I had not borked anything and still happens. As far as I can tell, only on IOS 7 slide up login screen post auth. Landing page fully loads and then a sudden redirect to platform.twitter.com.

Thanks for reporting; we’ll investigate this.


#5

I don’t have any such problem on iOS 7 on the pages I looked.
Do you have a public page that has that problem?


#6

It does not do it when you view the page from Safari - only in the slide up browser when at a hotspot.


#7

To make sure nothing was conflicting I created a new html page with nothing in it but the Twitter widget code. Same result - page completely loads and is redirected to https://platform.twitter.com.

If I hit the back button to reload the landing page it does not do it again - only on the first loading of the page.


#8

The title of the page on platform.twitter.com is “Twitter Widget Log Helper”


#9

To make sure that our post auth redirect was not causing an issue, I created a blank html page with a 2 second meta refresh in it pointing to the landing page with the Twitter widget in it. Same thing as before, it gets a second redirect to platform.twitter.com.

Twitter? Anyone?


#11

Nevermind - I setup an app to fix it.


#12

I don’t have IOS7

Apologies for responding to such an old thread, but I would tend to believe this is similar to what is described here - https://dev.twitter.com/discussions/19121. I have seen this behavior on iOS7 as well.
