HTC Peep login problem fixed

HTC Peep, HTC’s built-in Twitter client that comes pre-loaded with HTC Sense, has been broken. It’s been broken for the last few days, as a result of some login system changes make at Twitter’s end.

Twitter claimed the issue had been resolved a few days ago, but judging by the complaints still rattling around the internet this evening, it wasn’t. But it looks like it is now.

htc peep working 1

HTC Peep has started working again for us. We couldn’t sign in an hour ago, but just now managed a connection. Look, that’s us at the top of that screenshot, tweeting about the status of Android Twitter apps at 11.14pm on a Friday night, via HTC Peep.

That is how we “roll”.

      Strange. That’s what I had for a few days on Peep, before it fixed itself. From the other comments above, it sounds like Twitter/HTC haven’t got around to fixing non-Android authentication problems.

    • Yeah so do I! Really cross just got my HD2 back from o2 after being repaired now Twitter wont work!!! Oh soooo cross really peed off – does anyone no when it will be up and running again???

    • try sending a tweet through your peep. magically worked for my hd2 after sending one.

      as of 9/9/10 13:23 peep on the HD2 still not working, still getting the incorrect username password message.

      • As of today, I still get the incorrect username and password message when I try Peep with my HD2. Going direct to Twitter with Opera or IE works with the same username and password.

      Nexus 5It’s smooth to use, the 1080p display is sharp, clear and bright, the device is extremely light and thin and therefore very pocketable and portable — much more so than other 5-inch phones we’ve used. And yet… we’re a bit unimpressed by the overall package…
