Can't send a DM #1162

openbrian opened this issue Dec 16, 2018 · 9 comments


Copy link

I searched and found many DM issues, but not this one.

Expected behavior

DM is sent

Actual behavior

Flashed message, The user, tweet, or page does not exist.

Steps to reproduce

Go to the users page. Tap ellipsis in top right. Tap Send DM.

Extra info

User follows me and I follow them.

Android version: 8.0

Network type:

  • Cellular
  • [ x] Wi-Fi

App version: 3.7.3

Build variant:

  • Google
  • [x ] F-Droid

Micro-blogging service:

  • [x ] Twitter
  • Fanfou
  • GNU Social / StatusNet
  • Mastodon

App settings:

  • Custom API
  • Custom consumer key/secrets
  • Official keys
  • Using Thumbor
  • Connected through proxy
  • Media preview enabled

This works on my end. Try using the official keys (remove account from Twidere, enter official keys as linked in your post, re-create account in Twidere). There has been a point where Twitter removed some DM support from the API for third-party apps... with one of these keys, Twidere looks like the official app on API level.

I followed the instructions, confirmed the new key/secret. But still this did not work. I get the same result.

Despite getting the flash message, the DM does go through.

I've just switched from Twidere(*) keys to Twitter for Android official app. ones (as linked in your post). And it works fine: DM, even with pic., sent&received, notif. with answers&fav.
Question: are your connected in the same time with the Twitter for Android official app. (from the Google Play store)?

(*) v. 3.7.3 from F-droid running on Android 6.0.1

The problem might be the same as mentioned here: klinker24/talon-for-twitter-android#96
Twitter has switched to a new DM API

Copy link

This is happening for me as well on a brand new install. Can only assume support for the new DM API has yet to be implemented

Copy link

This seems like a dup of #1159 - DM is sent but also produces error, and no DMs are received. Close maybe?

I have the same issue and also I cannot see the messages I sent, just a "Message" element with nothing in the thread

I will put all DM (API) related issues under #1252 and close this one for now.

For now -- @patricktokeeffe @seth100 @jeremymeyers @Javran @openbrian @orithena
Can you try 4.0.8 *(on Google Play now, will updated on F-Droid soon as well).
