Twitter session expired
Is this happening to anyone else? The I guess built in twitter that syncs with the contacts app keeps expiring.
If I go to settings - accounts and sync it keeps saying there was a sync error. And "sync is currently experiencing problems. It will be back shortly"
Also when I go into contacts and click on some and go to activity twitter doesn't show up.. just facebook stuff.
I don't what the problem is but it didn't used to do this.. maybe the last update..?

welcome to the club. i kept getting the notification every 5 minutes saying that i needed to re-enter my password because the session expired. every 5 minutes! the sync would fail as well. So i got so annoyed that i removed that twitter sync account.
this is my very first android phone so idk if this is normal or not but i have 2 facebook sync accounts and 2 twitter. 1 facebook account seems to be for the widget on my homescreen and the other facebook sync account is for the address book. Same thing with the twitter. Is that normal?
** if that above post seemed too confusing.. **
If you try to add a new account to your Epic (settings > account and sync), it gives you 3 options: Facebook Twitter or Myspace .. but then right below, it gives you Corporate Google Facebook Twitter (but the facebook and twitter icons are different looking)
I'm not sure about the 2 facebook ones you have but I have the 2 twitters. The one with the blue box around it is the built in one I'm pretty sure and just the "t" is the official twitter app I have installed. Maybe you have a different facebook app you downloaded?

I've been noticing the sync errors since getting the DI18 update. Definitely annoying to have to relogin. The duplicate Facebook/twitter accounts are definitely because of the standalone apps in addition to the built in accounts. I don't seem to ever have a problem with the standalone apps, but notice that the "feeds and updates" Samsung widget always blanks out with the sync error.

I had the same problem with Twitter sync only.. So I removed that Twitter sync account and now use Pure Messenger Widget and I actually like it ALOT better than Samsungs bright pinkish Social widget as I can comment/reply to all SMS/Twitter/Facebook/Email ... I have it taking up one full page and love it.
