I've been using and old version of TweetDeck for ages, and just noticed that Twitter has taken over TweetDeck.

So I installed the latest version. When I try to login, I get the following error message:

Unable to connect. Please check your network.

The old TweetDeck continues to work perfectly.

Why am I getting this message with the new TweetDeck?

Well, after installing TweetDeck, I try to login, and I get the above error message. It is as simple as that. I don't know where to get more info from. The old TweetDeck works perfectly. I have updated flash, and air, and reinstalled TweetDeck, and I get the same problem. – oshirowanen Jun 8 '12 at 20:08

You're not missing much. The new Twitterfied Tweetdeck is almost comically bad. I'd recommend either sticking with 0.38.2 (the last Adobe AIR version) or finding a new client.

It's horrible, but this is the solution :

  1. Close Tweetdeck
  2. Open Internet Explorer
  3. Go to
  4. Close IE
  5. Start Tweetdeck
  6. Log on.

This worked perfectly thank you, I don't see why the other answer was accepted when it isn't really a solution to the problem, just a suggestion. – Rawb92 Nov 4 '12 at 8:26
See this blog for some background on why there's a problem and how the solution works (The page is mainly in Italian, but look at the blue box with a reply from Twitter Support which is in English). – user170057 Nov 4 '12 at 13:42
IE works for me, Chrome still gets the error. What a gong show. – tbone Apr 20 at 21:48
