Why our Twitter Log-ins are Down, and How to Change Your Log-in Over

If you're a regular user of Terminals who's been logging in with your Twitter account over the years, you might have noticed that option is currently unavailable. We'll cover why in a bit, but for the moment you likely just want to know how to access your account, and thankfully we have a solution.

How to Change Your Terminals Account from Twitter Log-in to Password Log-in

In order to access your account, you'll need to change it over from a Twitter log-in to a password log-in and the process is quite simple:

  • If you're logged into Terminals, log out of your account.
  • Go to the Terminals Password Reset Request page: https://www.terminals.io/password/reset
  • Enter the email address associated with the Twitter account you were using to log-in to Terminals.
  • You'll get a password reset email sent to that inbox, follow the instructions within.
  • Enter in your email and your desired password, and confirm it. After that you'll be prompted to enter your 2FA code (if enabled) and then sent back to your Terminals Dashboard.

And you're all set! After following those steps, your account will now have a standard password log-in and you'll to use that log-in as you need.

If you no longer have access to the email address associated with your Twitter account, or encounter other difficulties, please reach out to us at [email protected] and we'll do our best to help you out.

Why Am I No Longer Able to Log-in with Twitter?

Twitter is in the process of making a number of changes to how their API works and how they license it out to developers; that API is what allows us to have people log-in to Terminals using their Twitter account, as well as what allows you to connect your Twitter account to Terminals in the first place. In the course of them making these changes, our API Connection has been suspended due to how their new subscription model is structured, and unfortunately due to how their suspensions work, we're unable to access what we need to within our developer account to resolve the situation. We are currently trying to get through to their support team to get things fixed, but don't have any firm timeline as to when or even if we'll be able to get these issues dealt with.

As such, we're providing this method of swapping over to a password log-in as an immediate fix for those otherwise locked out of their Terminals account due to this situation, but we encourage all those affected to migrate over to a password log-in as soon as possible.
