    This thing is broken and can apparently no longer properly authenticate to Twitter's servers, so don't waste your time with it.

    Here we go again. Lots of "unable to connect to server" type messages for last few days, but then it started working again, at least enough to get some data from public timeline. So I tried to log in... Now I get the "invalid user / password" over and over. This is both logging in on the chumby and on the Chumby website. Both fail with the same message. It was working just a few days ago, and my kids are really bummed. Trouble shooting tips? Anything I can do at my end, or is it (as it appears) to be an authentication change at Twitter that Chumby hasn't caught up with yet? Please report back here, and send e-mail if you can. There seem to be plenty of others with this problem...

    Once again... The app is not working. I have been a 1st gen user of the Chumby for a long time, and I hope this not a signal of the end of development and support of the product or the apps. Please resolve this issue quickly, the Holidays are here and I was going to gift a few Chumbys, but I am now forced to reconsider, as we are power Twitter users.

    Is anyone looking into this issue? When will it get fixed?

    UNABLE TO CONTACT TWITTER SERVER...AGAIN. Folks, how hard can it be to keep a simple app like this RUNNING FOR MORE THAN A WEEK AT A TIME? Gad. Somebody must be asleep at the wheel at Chumby, they expect to sell these things and they can't keep probably the #2 US app running from day to day?

    Bad - invalid Username!

    Still not working for me. I'm carefully entering my username and password from the Chumby and the widget says they are invalid.

    Worked fine for a long time to let me monitor an app of mine that posts weather information. Hasn't worked now for weeks, and won't let me log in so that I can see my tweets.

    We are seeing these problems here as well. a bug has been filed and hopefully it will be back up and running soon. -chumby support

    Now it says UNABLE TO CONTACT SERVER. Fix please. Seems like lately not a day goes by when something is wrong with a popular Chumby app!

    Something is wrong with the way you guys send passwords. It didn't seem to handle my old password (which had `, $, &, and / in it.) I'm guessing you aren't correctly URL encoding them.


    September 29, 2011

    Yes, it is working now. Thanks!

    Looks good. Thanks for the quick response.

    We had a small issue with the app that should now be fixed. Please let us know if you are still seeing any issues. -chumby support

    I'm having the same problem as, on both a Chumby One and a Sony Dash. Both devices give a Sign-in screen saying to press SELECT to sign in to Twitter. Pressing everywhere on the widget does no good nor does customizing it from the web. Can you repost the previous version for us while you debug this one?


    September 29, 2011

    I have a Chumby Classic, and ever since the 9/28/11 update, I only get an sign-in screen. It says to sign in and press SELECT to sign in to your Twitter account. I tried rebooting the Chumby, signing in again through the web, and re-adding the widget.

    @feedle - I do notice some layout issues that we are going to take a look at, but I am not experiencing any crashes with this app (post SW update). When the app crashes, does it lock up your device? Have you tried power cylcing your Dash? -chumby support

    Since the recent firmware update, this app seems to crash on my Dash...

    I want you to support multi-byte(japanese) characters

  • jdjuice

    This needs support for Japanese and other character encodings.

    Cleared cookies, but it will only report invalid user / password over and over. tried both on the chumby and on the website. Both fail. App seems to not be functional.

    I'm trying to build an academic project with chumby and twitter. Can you suggest me a reference to implement the authentication with oAuth and ActionScript 2.0? (Considering that it seems your application is currently working fine with twitter).

    I can't seem to log in to this anymore. Is it updated for OAuth yet?

    Hi, Sorry for the delay, yes all the icon graphics are fine now on my chumby classic and infocast. Thanks! We should be as quick to praise....Thank you

    icon graphics issue: anyone home?

  • brian.millan

    July 11, 2010

    Many times the icon or graphic for the tweet you are receiving is not shown. For instance, I do not get personalized graphics for NYCASP or chumby. But I do get them for NotifyNYC. All the graphics appear fine on the Twitter page or on my iPod for instance. Anyone else had this?

    Please try it again. If you've tried it recently you may have to clear your browser's cache first. Re-post if you continue to have issues. Thanks.

    i always get user/password error too. just won't work.

    this widget just won't work for me. it does not accept my user/pass pair. ;-( i always get "Invalid Username Password" when setting up the widget.

  • theprawn

    The widget shows only the display name of a user, not their user name -- there doesn't seem to be any way to get their name to make sending an @reply intuitive. Showing their user name when zooming in on a tweet and/or having the @username inserted when clicking "send tweet" while viewing a specific tweet would make it a lot easier to interact with Twitter via Chumby.


    December 24, 2008

    The twitter widget is gone today. I see it on the Chumby, but it gets totally skipped over, and I when I try to select it on the control panel, the twitter widget does not load; the following widget appears.

    I left a note in the forums as well, but almost like joshgreen and craigfroehle, it won't verify my login. Grrrrrr. I'm stuck with the public timeline, which helps me not.


    December 14, 2008

    Any idea when "under construction" will end?

  • joshgreen

    November 25, 2008

    I can't get it to verify. Like craigfreohle, I just keep getting a time out. Any help?

  • craigfroehle

    November 14, 2008

    Hmm...I recently changed my Twitter password and now, when I enter my new password, the Twitter widget won't log in...times out every single time I try. Anybody else seeing log-in issues?

    Hi, does it work with a keyboard? When I plug one in, the cursor keys work and sometimes whole words are accepted. But most of the time, nothing happens... Do I need a special USB-keyboard? Is it not able to use a keyboard?
