Try to update the app to have it the latest. When 1st time receiving 401, repeat to log-in again...

I'm having the same problem and i just can't update Gwibber.

If i install gwibber with aptitude, apt-get or LMDE's software manager, i get version 1.2.0, in which this error occurs.

I tried to download the latest version of gwibber from its website, but then i couldn't manage to install it. :oops:

Gwibber wont work good for me at all and i just found another program for twitter and it works good for me.
I use now yoono desktop you can find it here: http://www.yoono.com/
Just unpack the file and use the blue yoono-desktop file you dont need to install it.

The Gwibber on testing does not work well with twitter. However the one in sid does(2.91).
So here is a little how-to:
open:
/etc/apt/sources.list
add the following line to the end of it:
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian sid main contrib non-free
it's a src repository so don't worry, it wont update you to sid. Make sure this is the only line with 'sid' in it(from the official repositories).
now run the follow:
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get build-dep gwibber
$ mkdir gwibber
$ cd gwibber
$ sudo apt-get -b source gwibber
$ sudo dpkg -i gwibber-service*
$ sudo dpkg -i gwibber_*_all.deb
$ sudo dpkg -i gwibber-themes_*

You are done now. Feel free to delete the created folder and its content(./gwibber/).
More info about backporting sid packages to testing: http://wooledge.org/~greg/sidfaq.html#10
Hope it works

Just for the record, Gwibber 1.2.0 does work just fine when using identi.ca. I just did not want everyone thinking Gwibber was horribly broken or anything. It may just now work with Twitter right now for some people. I do not use Twitter so cannot test it out on my end. If you are an identi.ca user, all is golden.
