    I have had Twitter two factor verification turned on since it came out. Yesterday while in chrome I needed to clear my cache and cookies. When I went to re-login to Twitter it sent a verification to my phone and I went to accept but I get an error. now I'm in this endless loop trying to get logged in on the desktop. I'm still logged in on my ipad and iphone. Anyone know a workaround? Also when I go to security feature on Twitter on the iPhone it seems to give me errors. I also tried resetting my password but that doesn't work because of the loop I get with the iPhone verification. SO ANNOYING!!

    Same problem here.

    Trying to login on twitter.com = "we've sent a login verification to Twitter iPhone app."

    Trying to login on iPhone app = "Error - you must create a temporary password on twitter.com."


    Endless loop. Attempted to contact support and received an automated reply telling me to check my time zone settings. :rolleyes:

    Twitter Verification Issue

    WTF time zones?
    Btw. Exact same messages.
    If I get this straightened out I'm getting rid of their half ass two factor until they set it up like Google

    I'm also getting when I receive my iPhone verification:

    Error
    Sorry, that login request is incorrect, please try signing in again.

    As a quick update. It's been 7 days since the ticket was opened and have not got a response. Also, no response from @support either.
    This is going to be a problem because I can't even delete my account to free up my email for another name. I wish I could figure out a solution.

    Good luck, I opened a ticket and finally got my account back 5 weeks later. Their support is virtually non existent

    You just have to wait. It happened to me and it literally took a month to hear back from them and then another 2 weeks before it was resolved. Their support sucks to the highest degree.

    Well, I was finally able to access my twitter account after they disabled the login verification. Unfortunately, I had to type a letter and mail it to the company in order to get my issue resolved. It's pretty sad that their tech support is so horrible that I had to resort to old fashion letter and snail mail.

    Anyhow, here is the address that I used:

    Twitter, Inc.
    1355 Market St, Suite 900
    San Francisco, CA 94103

    I put ATTN: Tech Support on the envelope. By the way, my issue was resolved within a day of them receiving my letter.

    Final update. Support just got back to me after three weeks but two step auth started working after the upgrade to iOS 7.0.3 so I closed the case.
