How to login to Twitter via Web (@twitter)

Discussion in 'Javascript' started by Garrett Smith, Jul 12, 2010.

  1. Twitter.com website uses a login URI that is inaccessible; the user
    cannot log in using the form UI. Attempting to log in to twitter.com in
    Firefox, for example, the browser displays the error to the user

    | Server not found
    | Firefox can't find the server at staging45.local.twitter.com.
    | * Check the address for typing errors such as
    | ww.example.com instead of
    | www.example.com
    |
    | * If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
    | connection.
    |
    | * If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy,
    | make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

    It's not a Firefox issue; it's that Twitter.com's login FORM's action
    references a URI that cannot be accessed (staging45.local.twitter.com).

    To login to twitter via web, go to http://twitter.com and change the
    form's action, either using Firebug or with this bookmarklet:

    javascript:void(document.getElementById("signin").action = "/sessions");

    There's been a host of other problems, including broken back button, as
    well as some bad approaches used in the javascript.

    Yes, that site is some piece of work. Their biggest mistake was
    hiring jQuery Ninjas to write the front-end. If investors could
    comprehend the ramifications of such decisions, there'd be far less
    major disasters out there.

    There was a space character (U+0020) there.

    And there, though it, as well as the previous two characters which
    remain, should have been removed by the responder.
