I have been having quite a bit of trouble getting a twitter application working for Facebook.  The “Twitter” application for Facebook installs but it just won’t recognize my user login, and it isn’t just me.  I tried to connect Rock Along Productions Twitter account with their Facebook account and reached the same issue.  I assumed it might be a FireFox browser issue, but I couldn’t get the Facebook twitter app to connect over Internet Explorer or Google Chrome either which leads me to believe something isn’t working properly with the Twitter Facebook application.

Go ahead and see if this method works for any of you, go to the Official Twitter Facebook application.

Click on “Install Twitter in Facebook”

This should take you to your Facebook App page where it asks you to enter your Twitter credentials.

No matter what you enter though it always fails for me and the 3 accounts I tested with.  I am not sure why, the error just states a problem with username or password yet I know its the right one and I have signed in and out of Twitter with it successfully.

Does anyone else have this problem trying to add a Twitter application to your Facebook account?  I have tried several other applications and have met no success yet.

      This is the part that dont’ work either, I followed your steps and get the blue “Sign into twitter” message inside Facebook but always fails with same “unable to authenticate” user error even though I am entering correct creds.

    Yep, me too, no joy whatsoever. Tried resets etc. Wondered if the underscore in my twitter username was causing problems, but that’s a bit random.

    I’d love to help, but I’m not a current member of either. I’ll save this though, just in case.

    I love getting these things ahead of time to know what to look for; please keep us updated on it. :)

    Same here, thanks for posting. I also have underscores in my Twitter username.

    • Dennis Edell @ DirectSalesMarketing

      Does the underscore matter?

    Have you tried using a combination of Tweetfeed and Ping.fm? If you did that and fed your Twitter Stream to Ping.fm, Ping will send it to Facebook and about 30 other sites.

      I dont’ think Tweetfeed will work to Ping.FM anymore since the API support was pulled.
