You’re not alone: Many TweetDeck users reporting strange password request!/BryanDFischer/status/277184259326885888

TweetDeck users, it’s not just you. Many users of the popular Twitter client (including several of us at Twitchy) are reporting that the application is telling them, sometimes over and over, that their Twitter credentials have changed and they need to re-enter their passwords. Others report missing columns once their password is eventually accepted.

Anyone else using tweetdeck getting requests for ‘new password’?

I just got a weird popup on Tweetdeck and I am not sure if its a scam. Saying my access token revoked and to type my password

Has anyone been prompted inside Tweetdeck w/ message that your ‘credentials have been revoked’ before?

@biblecat @upinthehills @dudgeohpolitics Thanks. TweetDeck suddenly started telling me my token had been recycled or password changed.

— Tom Reynolds (@Beregond) December 7, 2012

I think my @tweetdeck has died. Out of no where it says token is revoked or my password changed. Neither happened. Now lists won’t show.

Anyone else using Tweetdeck & getting messages that your Twitter credentials have changed & you need to type in new password? What gives?

@sagedoc I had tweetdeck asking me for a password a week or two ago. I just exited the app. and reopened because I didn’t trust it.

Anyone else having trouble with @tweetdeck? It says my credentials have changed, but I have no problems logging in at

Tweetdeck is screwing up, asking for password as my certificate revoked. Anybody else? Won’t update lists but All Friends & Mentions okay?

This is the latest tweet from TweetDeck, so there’s no official word of a fix from the developers yet.

We’ve just updated our Web & Chrome apps, mainly bug fixes but also hit ‘a’ to add a new column. Please restart/refresh browser to update.

Some say that the problem eventually clears itself up.

yay! @twitter has removed its boot from the throat of my Tweetdeck. all is right in my 140-character world again. #NippedItInTheBud

Since I started tweeting abt strange tweetdeck messages I’m not getting any more strange messages … which 1 of U is doing it? #paranoid

— Linda Salter (@sagedoc) December 8, 2012

Twitchy will keep monitoring for a definitive fix, but for now, our best advice is to be patient and know that it’s not just you.


Many TweetDeck users are still experiencing frustration on Saturday morning.

Tweetdeck keeps blathering about my access token being revoked because my password has changedNo it hasn’t! I’m not the only one it seems.

— Pat Winfield (@PatBookworm) December 8, 2012

@tweetdeck My Mac app prompts my password endlessly – typed it 10 times already and can’t proceed. Any advice? I’ve rebooted.

— Hanne Klintøe (@hanneklintoe) December 8, 2012

Still no word from TweetDeck on what’s causing the problem, and more importantly, how it can be fixed.
