Twittfix  fix native twitter client authentification. This package provide a fix for the native Harmattan Twitter. After applying this, you will be able to authentificate into Twitter With your Account.

1- Why it do not working anymore ?

Well... The native app use the OAuth 1 Authentification to grant acces to the app.


Twitter Auth Process

By sign-in with the App, according to twitter workflow, you need to provide an oauth_callback,

The only unique parameter in this request is oauth_callback, which must be a URL-encoded version of the URL you wish your user to be redirected to when they complete step 2. The remaining parameters are added by the OAuth signing process.

source :

2 - How it Fix

The callback url is call on the client side during auth process. No need to make a huge hack ! we only need to simulate that the callback URL return "TRUE" to the oauth2plugin (or succefull open an URL).

3 - But...

The stock twitter client do not show profile picture Anymore du to last API change. You will have to use it without seeing profile pics. And i am affraid to not be able to found a solution for this.

If the native twitter app annoys you cause it doesn't work right careful about doing apt-get purge twitter on the command line, I did that, it uninstalled twitter and bricked the phone! Needed complete flashing and re-installing. The native apps have to stay, otherwise you rip flesh out of the beast and it bleeds to death...
