    I have created an app on twitter and double checked the callback url is correct but I keep getting the same problem.

    I get the error "Something's broken...
    The page you have requested is currently unavailable due to an error."

    I checked the log file and I have this:

    Did you see this stack overflow discussion? It's pointing to incorrect callback URL. Are you sure the app is not redirecting from http to https, or from URL without slash at the end to one with slash? Both of those redirects are setup on misago-docker and can potentially lose the querystring with token.

    The OAUTH despite being standardized leaves plenty of freedom up to implementors, meaning different sites have quirks and gotchas specific to them. Its very hard to tell what's wrong for Twitter.

    Yeah I have done lots of googling. I have already read that and tried all the suggestions. I really don't understand whats going on. I have listed all possible callback urls in the APP and I have set the correct credentials in the forum. Strange.

    Still can't find a solution for this problem though. It looks like plenty of others out there have the same problem as me. Something to do with the django package used for social auth.

    So I found the error. When you give the settings for twitter it doesn't save it to the configuration file properly it converts it all to lowercase.

    I've went on to check if this is an issue and its working fine on my local instance. 🤔
