Operation is not valid due to the current state of the object

I made a Log In + Tweet sample on http://grwpo.azurewebsites.net/simplelogin.aspx, but for some unknown reason, though it rarely happens, it throws the following error:

Operation is not valid due to the current state of the object

The steps are:
  1. Click on Participa (Participate)
  2. Authorize and get code
  3. Insert code in site, click Verifica tu codigo (Verify your code)
  4. Tweet
As I said ealier. This error rarely happens and I've been unable to catch the cause. I appreciate any help.

Hi there,

Would you please try to publish your application on a machine that you "own". I know that"Operation is not valid due to the current state of the object" can be received if the machine system time is incorrect.

If the error occurs try to get the Time of the local machine and get the Time from the internet and compare these to check whether there is a difference. Usually a difference of seconds can make the operation crash because twitter are preventing them to occur.

Is there no way to avoid this problem? I normally publish to Azure Websites, and I can't control the time on them. Though I imagine they should have the right time. And I rarely get this error, but when I get it, I don't know why.

Could you please try to get the latest version of Tweetinvi (Source Code), compile it and use the generated DLL.
Then log the errors from the ExceptionHandler and reply to this thread. I will have more resources to help you this way.

Did this ever get resolved? I'm getting a similar issue

Hi there,

No, it has never been resolved because I did not get the information I needed to investigate the problem any further.
I you could please send me the information that are stored in your ExceptionHandler I will be happy to help you.

I solved it myself thanks, it was a configuration problem with my application in twitter - I had left the callback field empty.
