I can’t sign in with moTweets. What could be wrong? (Help Form)

This problem could be related to one of several issues described below:

  • You have entered the wrong username/password.  Make sure to enter your username and password exactly as you have set them on Twitter.  Also make sure that your CAPSLOCK is not on when entering your password.
  • The Twitter service may be down.  It is not uncommon for the Twitter service to have network outages or overloaded capacity problems.  If you see the error message “Error: Unable to retrieve Twitter data” when signing in, a Twitter service failure is likely the cause.  The best thing you can do is wait a few minutes and try again.
  • If you get the error message “Unable to retrieve Timeline”, it is a known issue with Twitter and retrieving too many items in your timeline.  The best way to get around this is to go to Options and set your “Max Tweets” to 25.
  • If these steps do not fix the problem, please take the time to fill out this Help Form and we will try to resolve your issue as soon as possible.

How do I upgrade to the latest version?

How does Live Tiles work with moTweets?

  • In the Options menu set the Live Tile to On. You will then see a custom Live Tile with the images of your accounts displayed. 
  • It will also show you the number of Unread Direct Messages and @Mentions. This is updated every hour but resets when you launch moTweets.
  • Unfortunately Microsoft does not give us control over the frequency of the updates, so moTweets can only make a request to update the Tile. We have found that the update ranges from instant to 2 days to update.
  • If you are still not seeing an updated tile:
    • Please note that Microsoft has a limit for Live Tile updates, and you may have reached it with your other apps installed on your Windows Phone.
    • You can try and unpin the Tile, reset your phone, pin the Tile and then start moTweets again.
