If you use Twitter and suddenly discover that you cannot tweet because the button has been disabled, don’t despair! Read on to try this simple fix.
A simple remedy you can use to fix a greyed out tweet button is to delete all the twitter.com cookies that your browser has stored on your computer. Deleting cookies varies from browser to browser, but generally follows a similar procedure.
For instance, if you use Firefox, select the Preferences menu, then choose the Privacy option from the sidebar. Under the History heading, select “Use custom settings for history” from the drop down menu. From there, click the Show Cookies button. In the Search window, enter twitter, then highlight only those entries that specifically say twitter.com (avoid the others). Click the Remove Selected button at the bottom of the window.
In Chrome, select the Preferences menu, then click the “Show advanced settings” link located near the bottom of the browser window. Under the Privacy heading, click the Content settings button to bring up a dialog box. In Content settings, click the “All cookies and site data” button located under the Cookies heading at the top of the window. In the Search cookies window, enter twitter.com. You should see a display showing the number of twitter cookies stored locally on your computer. Highlight the entry using your mouse, then click the Remove all shown button.
That’s it! Try logging into Twitter again and verify whether that fixed the problem.
