0Auth token authentication will not work

after adding the new Twitter account, I am unable to receive a token to log into twitter from Bitlbee. I have looked at every configuration related to this issue and I am still unable to find a fix. Gtalk and Facebook work perfectly. When I turn the Twitter account on in Bitlbee I am waiting a response but it only says that it is connecting and I don't receive a response at all.

So at which step do you get stuck exactly? You didn't even get a URL from BitlBee?

I have the same problem. Here is exactly what I get:

@ProgVal | account add twitter ProgVal foo                             
   @root | Account successfully added with tag twitter                 
@ProgVal | account 1 on                                                
   @root | twitter - Logging in: Connecting                            
     --> | twitter_ProgVal (twitter_ProgVal@twitter) a rejoint &bitlbee
      -- | Mode &bitlbee [+v twitter_ProgVal] par localhost            
   @root | twitter - Logging in: Requesting OAuth request token  

No matter how much I wait, I don't get anything more.

And other protocols work? From the machine BitlBee runs on, you can connect to port 80 and 443?

Hi there, I use emacs ERC, and have meet the same situation. Yet later I discover that the oauth url is sent through a private message. I switch to that buffer, open the url in browser and respond the code from twitter. Everything works now.
