    i just did a clean install of snow leopard (7 pass erase hd) and i'm trying to reinstall a few apps via the appstore, which all seem to work fine. except for the (free) twitter app. whenever i try to install it shows an apple id that is not mine ( and whenever i enter mine i get a fail to comply notice.

    i've been searching google for this, but they only speak of illegal software you need to remove, but there is no illegal software on this mbp. hand on heart. so also no app store update notifications or anything.

    i also did the osx 10.6.8 update combo but that didn't help either

    it's quite annoying since this app worked fine before i did the clean install.

    anyone have a fix for this?
    thank you

    i did a search here as well, but could find anything.

    I had this happen to me when I had an illegitimate copy of FCPX, but the app that was weird was angry birds. Once I removed FCPX it stopped, but if you have all legitimate software on your machine, than who knows.
