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 Twibs.com
Regarding logging in, Twitter.com 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 Twibs.com, you entered your username and password directly from Twibs.com. Now, you will need to click the button "Log in with Twitter", then you will be taken to Twitter.com where you enter your username and password, and will then be returned to Twibs.com where you can manage your account. The reason for this is to keep logging in happening at Twitter.com and no where else to reduce security vulnerabilities. So give it a try!
It's now easier to update your account.
Previously, Twibs.com updated your Twitter account information displayed on Twibs.com 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks, and have a great day.
