Using the dedicated twitter app on my lumia 920 I can usually access updates without a problem. However, every now and then, accessing the what's new tab in the people hub seems to have trouble synching updates. Trying ... and refresh sometimes exits with a message, sometimes throws me back to the start screen, and sometimes just does nothing.

Accounts I have linked are google, twitter, facebook and linkedin.

Is there any conceivable reason why updates in the people hub sometimes work and sometimes don't?

    The title indicates it's just twitter, while your question seems to point to a wider problem, is it JUST twitter in the people hub that isn't working or is it all updates? Jan 8, 2013 at 18:20
  • It probably is all people hub what's new updates, or one of them that blocks all. I update the headline to reflect that.

The first thing I try for these types of problems is to delink all accounts and relink them 1 at a time, checking to see if the people hub works. Often times issues like this are caused by the oAuth token being revoked by the external service for whatever reason. I won't say that's your problem, but it's pretty likely.
