Description

I have TBB 5.5.4

I keep getting disconnected when using Tor Messenger on my Twitter account. This message keeps appearing:

http://pho.to/A4iMY

While this message appears in the Tor Messenger tab in the section I try to send a Twitter DM to someone:

"An error (Your credentials do not allow access to this resource.) occurred while sending: ?OTRv2?
(my twitter account name) has requested an Off-the Record private conversation. However, you do not have a plugin to support that. See http://otr.cypherpunks.ca/ for more information."

I do have the OTR plugin. The people I try to DM also have Tor Messenger. They can't DM me either on Tor Messenger. Here is a screenshot of the OTR plugin I have:

This also appears with a 401 error. It keeps getting disconnected, then re-connects, then disconnects and on and on.

The Instantbird app does appear in my twitter account.

Jabber works great on Tor Messenger and doesn't get disconnected. It's just while on Twitter.

Thanks for filing the report.

You can't send or receive messages until the account is connected, so let's not worry about that for now.

I keep getting disconnected when using Tor Messenger on my Twitter account.

Hmm, I wonder if the stored oauth token is no longer valid.

Can you try going to:

Preferences > Advanced > General > Config Editor

Search for messenger.account.account1.options.oauth and set that to an empty string.

(The number in account1 may differ for you. Look for the one with prpl-twitter.)

Then try connection again.
