This happens at least 50% of the time I’m opening a Twitter link inside Apollo, Basecamp, Reeder or any other app using an in-app browser. I don’t even know where to begin. For one thing, I even have your garbage app installed! Why are you still punishing me for trying to use your website? Why is there a “Try again” button that never works no matter how often I try, while refreshing the page via the in-app browser controls always works? Why is that button only there sometimes? Why are you showing me an error message about “my account” when I’m clearly not even logged in? Why are you telling me that something is not available to me when it – again – is always available after reloading via the in-app browser controls? Why do you hate your own users so much?

No adblockers, no VPN, nothing. Not that those would be acceptable excuses for this shitty behavior, but at least I could make sense of why it happens in a technical way then.
