    You need a Twitter account for this.

    Start a video, hit cn_A so that the video controls pop up, and click the three little dots that are connected. It'll ask you to log in, and then you can tweet the video link. Once you've tweeted this will pop!

    Dark Death 90Does not work? I put in my username and password and it just says "Something went wrong. Client is not permitted to perform this action." What am I doing wrong?

    SquiggleBucketGo to your settings on twitter, and either remove the ABC app or reallow it to tweet for you. It's either something in your privacy settings for the app or twitter/abc updated something and broker it :/

    Dark Death 90The ABC app does not appear in my Twitter settings at all so I can not enable anything.

    SquiggleBucketABC or twitter could've updated something and broke it. I can check later to see if mine still works?

    ShinUkyoI almost had a stroke earlier when I got that same notification "client is not permitted." Tried many things to no avail. Tried using my email address to log in instead of my username, as recommended in another post on TA, but that didn't do it. I knew the achievement was still obtainable, as loads of people were unlocking it as recently as yesterday. But then...

    I noticed part of the error message mentioned "UTF-8" as part of the reason. I figured, then, that it might involve having special characters in your password (which many people do, myself included.) Things like asterisks, exclamation points, the "@" symbol, etc. I went on Twitter and changed my password to something with only letters. And upon doing this, it worked! So for people getting stuck with this issue, that should do the trick.

    CurtiesonWonder if this one is broken one has gotten it since ShinUkyo did over 6 months ago (when you dig into it, looks like a steady stream that stopped in July, weird those dont show in the recent winners). I am getting the same error, changed my PW to "aqws" even to make it super simple, nothing works.
    And yes, i changed it back so don't try and sign in as me, hahaha.
