About a week ago Twitter would no longer let me log in on their site due to a popup which caused an infinite redirect loop. I have tried Mobile mode and TweetDeck so far but none of these worked for me, is there anything else I could try?

Edit 1: I have now tried Twitter on my phone and on a few other browsers but all of them have the same problem.

  • Try Incognito mode

  • @Appleoddity I have already tried Incognito mode and other browsers (Firefox,Opera) aswell. None seem to work.

  • Have you tried a browser that you surely have never used for twitter? Or tried to delete all cookies, local storage etc? When this popup appeared first, have you accepted the new conditions? Just because they warned: if you decline, your account will be deleted (or disabled??) as far as I remember.

  • @deadcandidate I cant accept the new conditions because the pop-up won't even load and yes i have tried Firefox Chromium Chrome and Opera so far and none of them have worked and i never used Firefox or Opera.

  • @wechh Something doesn't clean for me: now I've tried to open twitter.com from a clean browser and I haven't got that GDPR message... weird...

Tested in Chrome.

Try to press cancel button (near to address bar) when page is loading. Now, you can accept new GDPR rules by pressing button in right top corner.

I had the same problem and this works for me.


Same issue. Tried incognito, proxy, app, all available browsers on mobile and pc. Contacting support, changing password and all to no avail. Answer is simple, create a new account. Nothing seems to work...

  • Thanks, I'll try that. I have the same issue too and can't access Twitter for many months... Hope creating a new account will help...
