Why can’t I access Twitter from my PC?

Anonymous April 25, 2014

I am unable to access my Twitter page from my PC, but I have access through my mobile. If I click Twitter.com through my PC it states “SSL ERROR” . What it means and how to rectify?

    I saw this one just a couple of days ago! According to the thread in https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!msg/chrome/CT73DcHzecM/xTkx7Af7BPYJ it is caused by Twitter updating their certificates and users of most browsers on Windows XP are now unable to access it unless they have Service pack 3 installed.

    The solution is to install Service Pack 3. A workaround is to use Firefox instead (it deals with the encrypted communication itself rather than using the Windows' libraries to do so). Let us know if this helps.
