Twitter doesn’t like my identity

time to read 2 min | 215 words

Recently I noticed that a very important feature in twitter website is broken for me. I can’t follow the entire conversation any longer, which drive me crazy.


It didn’t take me long to figure out what the actual issue is:


It appears that even though I am logged in, some parts of twitter doesn’t like this.

I then thought that this has something to do with chrome, so I used the incognito mode to try it:


It works!

I logged out and in again, nada. I cleared all browser history and restarted chrome, nada.

I uninstalled chrome (selecting delete all browsing history) and re-installed, and now it is working.

No idea why, and I don’t like the heavy handed approach, but at least now I got my twitter tracking back.

Sounds like a Chrome bug more than a Twitter bug.

I get the same problem with TenderApp - on one Chrome install it fails with 401 50% of the time, but a ctrl+F5 often fixes it.

This has always happened for me. Had never tried incognito but that works as it does for you.I have no extensions installed. It's pretty annoying and I haven't found anything out there about the problem other than this post.
