SSL error on platform.twitter.com

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js currently has an SSL error causing it not to load. Instead an ugly error in the browser comes up if you try to access it directly.

Yeah I also facing a issue with following ssl error

SSL ERROR: You attempted to reach platform.twitter.com, but instead you actually reached a server identifying itself as si0.twimg.com. This may be caused by a misconfiguration on the server or by something more serious. An attacker on your network could be trying to get you to visit a fake (and potentially harmful) version of platform.twitter.com. You should not proceed.

Do you mean you get the text "access denied" when visiting http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js in your browser? Do you still see this?

Hi, I cannot access to get http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js or the http://platform.twitter.com/embed/timeline.97ea650dd75d8c1ac0e2c6b4918203b5.default.css
unless I use https://... to access.

Could you help me why I can not get it with http://... as I see this code:
p=/^http:/.test(d.location)?'http':'https';
and thought it support both http and https, right?

@bsdblog

I took a look at your site which is bundling an old version of our widgets, which is now pointing to a reference to a follow button that doesn't exist anymore. The bundled file located here:
http://www.brainshutdown.com/js/jquerylibs.1326822267.js

We suggest developers to link to:
//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

I took a look at that page, you are hotlinking to an expired/cached iframe:
http://platform.twitter.com/widgets/tweet_button.1329368159.html

Please link to:
http://platform.twitter.com/widgets/tweet_button.html

or use widgets.js to generate your tweet_buttons.

@chanian Ian Chan

Hi @FreeSpiritDesi1, I took a look at your page and you are incorrectly linking to a cached version of the follow button:

http://platform.twitter.com/widgets/follow_button.1326407570.html

Please update your links to point to:
http://platform.twitter.com/widgets/follow_button.html?screen_name=

How did you originally generate that code? It looks like the params where set incorrectly too. Have you taken a look at the suggested documentation here: https://twitter.com/about/resources/buttons

thanks @chanian you have been amazingly helpful!

I'm not sure how i got the wrong code as i just went to the twitter help page and cut and pasted the code provided - the fact is i really don't have much of a clue about this stuff so its not surprising i went wrong!

anyway, thanks so much for your advice - i went to the link you provided, installed the code, and now have a working twitter follow button - wohooo!

What is platform.twitter.com? This morning I keep getting a warning that my browser can't find the certificate or some such. But I didn't go to twitter, I get the warning when I am on other sites. So far I have cancelled every time, but should I worry about this?

@chanian Ian Chan

platform.twitter.com is where we host widgets for other websites. if you are visiting a website that has a tweet button or follow button, you will fetch resources from that url. there shouldn't be any certificate errors though. Could you provide an example page that you saw this on? I can definitely take a look.

Hello Ian Chan, I was getting this error on the next url:

https://platform0.twitter.com/widgets/follow_button.html?screen_name=ElUniversal&button=blue&id=twitter_tweet_button_0&lang=es&show_count=false

Now It is not appearing when I try to get in the web page. I was saying something with akamai

@chanian Ian Chan

hi Daniela, is this your website? if not, where did you find that url.
That url is no longer supported, you'll note that if you try:

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets/follow_button.html?screen_name=ElUniversal&button=blue&id=twitter_tweet_button_0&lang=es&show_count=false

it should work correctly (platform.twitter vs platform0.twitter)

This fixed my issue, thanks Ian!

How long has platform0.twitter.com not been supported for? Just wanted to get a handle on how long this may have been occurring on one of our network sites.

chanian
@chanian Ian Chan

platform{0,1,2,3} have never been officially supported URL endpoints. While our widgets may have pointed to those resources, the only officially support SSL safe urls were on platform.twitter.com

Given that, I can't give you an exact timeframe of how long there may have been SSL issues if you were hotlinking to platform0.

The same here. It's 2 days since I get an SSL error on Chrome & IE. Now I've signed in to twitter using Firefox. The strange side of the story is that non of the settings on my pc/network/wi-fi, I mean nothing, has changed since my last normal twitter visit 2 days ago!
I used another ISP, but useless. And another strange part is that other websites using secure connection (https) like facebook working normally. So we may conclude the problem must be on twitter itself, not our devices/connections.
