Twitter users may need to re-authorize Choqok

Twitter is forced its new permission level from today, first of July. So, Choqok users who want to see and send direct messages should re-authorize Choqok to access their direct messages.

Here you can read more from twitter blog.

Twitter said that current authorization level (Read/Write) can send direct messages. So, If you disabled sent and received direct messages timelines in Choqok, and you don’t need to access them from Choqok, Its OK, you can continue with current authorization.

Have fun :)

    i try to use choqok, but it have so many crashes at the boot… i use the 1.0.0v (on the ubuntu repo there isn’t the 1.1.0 yet)


  2. I re-authorized choqok to access but I can’t send DM! ( I see them btw )


  3. I have same problem. When you wanna send a DM, Chokoq can’t retrieve friends list :(

    Hmmm… Just a wish, but would you be able to add Google+ as a service in the future to choqok?


  5. I still have the problem sending DM’s. Choqok hasn’t authorization to retrieve friends list and can’t send them :(


    • There’s just another problem with Choqok that is fixed in git, Choqok could not get your friends list, because of some silence changes on twitter api. this will be fixed with next stable release.


      • What’s the ETA of the next release?

      • I hope, It be ready until end of this month

        Is it possible to give a prediction on when a release will be available that solves the DM problems?

        Maybe it’s possible to release a bugfix-version (if that’s the proper word; after all it’s due to changes in the Twitter api) for the DM issues before a bigger version update?

  6. Ok Mehrdad, thanks for the info :) You do a great job with Choqok


  7. Will be another release soon?

    Great twitter client Mehrdad, thank you for Choqok! But here also have problem with direct message. I’m running Kubuntu 11.10 and Choqok 1.1

    Mehrdad, I just updated to v 1.2 and now when I select Twitter at the account config screen, it says “Cannot load the choqok_twitter plugin. Please check your installation.” I’ve tried re-installing 3 times, but get the same result. It worked fine before the update.
    Any advice would be appreciated.


    • Hmm, let me guess, I think this can happen if you installed new Choqok on a different path than previous, so both plugins are on your system, and it seems that the older one is somewhere with higher priority for Plugin Manager.
      Search for choqok_twitter on your system.
