Ok, I'm brand new to Android so bear with me as this is my first Droid smartphone (just came from Blackberry...)

I've had my Droid X2 for about a week - it's stock, not rooted and I've installed a handful of apps from the Marketplace. All seemed to be going relatively well until mid-day today when an orange caution triangle appear on the top left of my screen where the status notifications appear. When I swiped down it says Twitter connection error.

From My Accounts I added beside my various email accounts both Facebook and Twitter. After adding Facebook, most of my contacts have pictures now and I learned how to "join" contacts 0 so that is working well.

I just stated using Twitter so I'm only following a few people/things and making only a few posts...

Under All Apps, after adding my Facebook and Twitter credentials under My Accounts, I can see posts on both services from the Social Networking App that came preloaded on the Droid X2, so I know the credentials are correct. I even went so far as installing Seesmic and added both accounts - like that app best but it has some bugs I found, but that's for another discussion...

So, when I go to Messaging, both my Universal Inbox and Twitter have the orange cautionary triangle. When I go into either one and refresh I get an "Unable to connect to Twitter." message. Now here's the crazy part, I already know the credentials are good because the other apps/services (Social Networking and Seesmic) work and if I send myself a tweet (from under Messaging), it appears in both the universal inbox and the twitter inbox fold, but I still get the orange cautionary triangle. I have removed the account quite a few times and cleared my caches to no avail plus I'e even tried battery pulls w/o an effect. I really have no clue why this suddenly started happening after nearly a week of having the DX2. Is there a Motorola Service perhaps that could be down or not working properly and therefore I'm getting this notification? (I'm thinking like when Blackberry service had outages...)

Any advice is welcome. Thanks.

That's your advice? Did you even read my post? Of course I deleted and readded the accouint several times before putting this post out on several forums which obviously had no impact on the issue.

While I have yet to receive any credible advice that can resolve the problem - I am now seeing other DX2 users report the same issue. Maybe it IS a Motorola or Verizon issue after all.

I hope your advice to others is more helpful than your advice to me...

Just to clarify, when you add the twitter account to your phone under accounts are you using the MotoBlur twitter login or are you using the official twitter app login?

I am currently using Seesmic for both Facebook and Twitter. Originally, what lead to this issue was under Accounts on my DX2 I added my Twitter and FB credentials so a) I could see all posts under Social Networking and b) if I had any direct messages they would come into my Universal Inbox under messaging. I tried the dedicated Twitter app and dedicated FB app but later decided I liked Seesmic better even though there are some issues w/Seesmic. In all cases I used the same Twitter credentials and they worked, so I know that wasn't the issue. For the time being I have removed Twitter under Accounts. I'm still convinced the issue is either Motorola or Verizon related as I had the phone working w/o issue for several days before it just started happening - at the time the issue began, I made no changes at all to any app or account on my DX2 - it simply just started happening. SO for now since I removed the account the issue is gone - not solved or resolved, just gone by way of account deletion.
