In its support page, the social network at the blue bird advises to use the site whatsmybrowser.org to determine if the browser is in its latest version.

If not, updates are available online or through the App Store for Safari.

Delete browsing data

The Twitter bug can also come from a problem with cookies, small trackers that follow our browsing on the internet.

One solution may be to clear the cache as well as the browser cookies.

If all other options have failed, some experts recommend updating the computer time.

This is because the date and time on your device may interfere with Twitter's servers which indicate a different time.

As a safety measure, Twitter may then terminate your connection and display an error.

In this case, the maneuver is a little more complicated and differs depending on the operating system.
