Can't connect to Twitter

13.06.2018, 21:47

I am getting an error running 18.0.7 on MacOS Sierra. I had never logged into Twitter via MaxQDA before tonight, and when I click Import Data from Twitter > Connect to Twitter , I get the following error message:

Error transferring - server replied: Forbidden
Callback URL not approved for this client application. Approved callback URLs can be adjusted in your application settings

Is this fixed in 18.0.8 ? I am doing fieldwork and using pay-as-you-go internet so I would rather not download the new version at the moment unless it definitely fixes the problem.


Version: MAXQDA 2018
System: Mac OS X 10.12 (Sierra)

Hi Derick,

Thanks for asking! Twitter changed something in their API last evening, so one of our programmers had to check some option somewhere – now it should work again (no update required, although I'm pretty sure it wouldn't hurt, but I know the logic of not changing the system if it's not necessary when you're in the middle of a project..). If it doesn't in your case, please write us again!

Kind regards,

MAXQDA Support Team
