403 Error on Twitter Posting

Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

403 Error on Twitter Posting

Post by Kendra M Parker » 06 Oct 2018, 08:56

For the last couple of days I’ve been trying to use the link on the Giveaway page to post to Twitter, but I’m getting a 403 error. The full text of the error is as follows:

403 Forbidden: The server understood the request, but is refusing to fulfill it.

Is there something wrong with my Twitter account that isn’t letting this post go or is this an issue on the OnlineBookClub side? If the former, can you guide me in what to check?

Thanks!

I didn't have any issue with it. If you are using Adblock, you should disable it before clicking on the Twitter button.
