Updating Your Twibs Account

Greetings from Twibs!

This week Twibs made some changes to the way you a) log in to your account and b) update your Twitter account information displayed on

Regarding logging in, has asked that ALL applications built upon Twitter switch to what is known as "oAuth" for logging in. We won't bore you with technical details, but know that this method is much safer for users in the Twitter ecosystem.

How logging in has changed
Previously, when you went to login to, you entered your username and password directly from Now, you will need to click the button "Log in with Twitter", then you will be taken to where you enter your username and password, and will then be returned to where you can manage your account. The reason for this is to keep logging in happening at and no where else to reduce security vulnerabilities. So give it a try!

It's now easier to update your account.

Previously, updated your Twitter account information displayed on once a day, but as the system grew, and Twitter grew, many apps were not being updated regularly due to the number of updates our system had to process.

Now, EVERY TIME YOU LOG IN your account information will get updated. We will still do our best to keep your account up to date for you, but this gives you a way to manually update your information such as profile pic, follower count, etc without waiting for our automatic process to happen.

If you have any questions or comments, please email us at

Thanks, and have a great day.
