did you create a Twitter application as the guidelines of Twitter api request? You also need Access Token and Access Secret. link @Malek Ben Salem

if you are still facing this issue and you already tried to regenerate the key and it didn't work

try to make sure of the clock in your sandbox is set correctly to do so run the following :

1. yum install -y ntp

2. service ntpd stop

3. ntpdate

4. service ntpd start

Regenerating 'Consumer Key/Secret' and Access token didn't help. Tried ntpd clock time adjustment. It worked ! !

Thanks guys !!


thanks! had this same problem and getting ntpd running properly fixed it.


Thanks a ton! Worked for me as well. As he said, if regeneration of the keys didn't work. This should probably fix the issue.


Thank you! It worked for me.

I had the same problem, I tired regenerating access key and token

but with no luck

what I found later .. that the time and date on the sandbox was off

so I update the time to the correct one

and create a new app in twitter api

and it works fine
