    Hi guys, I'm using Followliker, my accounts have error messages and the activity log states that it is due to the username and password might not match, but when I log into the accounts manually it ask me for either the email address or phone number associated with the account, once I enter this an unblock them, the same error happens, is there anyway to fix this or is anyone experiencing the same problem....thanks

    I think there is currently a problem with FL Twitter edition. Read the posts on the last page http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...interest-bot-tumblr-bot-follow-liker-148.html if nothing helps, send a support ticket.

    We have investigated and isn't FL. I have been up all night testing a couple of account, twitter require phone verification on account when you login through browser. If you logout and login again they still request phone verification again and again, just because you logged in. I suspect the last twitter down time has caused their system to malfunction.

    I'll keep everyone updated if I find more useful information.

    This is a twitter issue, read more here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...tter-acc-lock-asking-phone-verify-unlock.html

    i can confirm that it's not FL

    i don't use FL twitter edition at all, i use a different bot, i was getting this issue on a few accs and i was getting this on an account which has never seen any bot

    i'm not sure what caused this for me or still causes this for others, i was getting it only for a few hours on just one day, 22nd Jan and only a few accs were affected

    it might be related to the downtime though

    Yes Jan 21 and 22 is when it happened to my accounts too.

    And I am running like 190 accounts right now and we are still counting how many but a guess is that around 80% got hit.

    I am it's just a temporary thing.

    Same here. Anyone with suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I agree this isn't related to certain activity and is likely twitter related with their own problems. But perhaps someone has a solution or workaround temporarily.

    I dont think it has anything to do with any downtime or FL. Twitter has been increasing their security for the last few months. This is just the next step. I have had almost all my accounts locked multiple times and now am dealing with bans. Think about it... for the average person a quick lock asking the person to verify a text or change their password is no big deal... but to a spammer its hell... most people dont have access to the number their accounts were verified with and even if you do.. its too much work...

    I used to love Twitter but lately its become extremely unstable. As of right now there really isnt anything that can be done aside from waiting to see what they do about it. The only hope IMO is that they piss off enough customers or loose enough accounts to make it look like their growth slowed to their investors. If their shareholders get pissed enough they will back off.. if not, then the security will tighten.

    Twitter is still one of the easiest platform to work with. This is not a big problem, just FL need to make a update to the new patches that twitter have rolled out.

    Instead of phone verification, Twitter ask me to enter my email for verification again after i log into the account. Does FL solve this, because the bot i'm using at the moment doesn't.

    I've been playing with FL for a few days now and I've gone through this headache a few times before sorting things out

    You'll want to right click, 'Edit Email' and put the email associated with each account along with the password and the IMAP hostname etc (if its gmail its imap.gmail.com, you can look your email providers IMAP up on google). You might have to enable IMAP in your email addresses settings too.

    If it doesnt verify the email, remember to log into those accounts from the IP you registered them on. If you ever logged into them anywhere else or without that IP, clear the cookies in your browser. After you clear the cookies in your browser, log into them with the IP/proxy you made them with, and run FL. At this point all your email info is accurate and the account traces back to the IP you signed it up with and you should see that it successfully verifies the account.
