status post throwing unauthorization error

Reported by Lee Martin | April 1st, 2009 @ 12:13 PM

My users login fine, but when trying to post to Twitter I get the following:

"TwitterAuth::Dispatcher::Unauthorized: The credentials provided did not authorize the user."

vendor/plugins/twitter-auth/lib/twitter_auth/dispatcher/shared.rb:23:in handle_response' vendor/plugins/twitter-auth/lib/twitter_auth/dispatcher/oauth.rb:22:inrequest'
app/controllers/tracks_controller.rb:77:in `post_status'

Using the README tip:

current_user.twitter.post('/statuses/update.json', 'status' => params[:status])

This error only occurs on my production server, works fine locally.

    I don't have too much experience with UTF-8 characters and the like. I'm open to any patches related to this issue but I'm not sure exactly what the problem is. When I have some time I'll see if I can experiment a bit myself. If it works locally, is there a difference perhaps in the encodings of a database on your production side?

    This may actually have been a Twitter API issue: http://code.google.com/p/twitter...

    Can you try again and see if you're still having problems? Reopen if so.

    I'm suffering from the same problem as Levent - I keep getting "The credentials provided did not authorize the user" when posting a status to Twitter.

    Any ideas?
