I upgraded my Nexus S from Android 2.3.1 to 4.0.3 and all was well: those I follow on Twitter turned up in the new People app. But recently I ran a factory reset to try and improve battery life and since re-installing Twitter for Android it refuses to sync my contacts.

My Twitter account has been added to the Settings > Accounts & sync screen. What I get for "Sync Contacts" is: "Sync is currently experiencing problems. It will be back shortly". "Sync Twitter" is working fine as is syncing with googlemail accounts.

My colleague has a Samsung Galaxy Nexus (also running Android 4.0.3) and I got him to add his Twitter account to the Settings > Accounts & sync screen. He is getting the exact same problem.

Is anyone else getting this? It's been broken for a few days now.

It's a problem with Twitter. It was fine a few days ago on stock Galaxy Nexus with 4.0.1 and then it just stopped working.

Mine works, but I installed from a backup so they may be gone when it updates.

It's a 4.0.3 or Twitter 3.0.1 error I think, not sure. Anyway I contacted them (FWIW) and I got the basic reply:

It worked fine for weeks, only stopped a week or so ago. Something on twitter's end.

Yeah I figured in the meanwhile, not app/OS version specific, lets hope they can fix it soon because my contacts are all grey and boring atm :P
