Can't Connect to Twitter Returns

I am not sure why but I got this twitter problem again suddenly. Last time this happened, I solved the problem by following the instructions below. 
  • Activate “Developer mode” by going to: Settings > Security > Developer mode. It’s OFF by default. Turn it ON.
  • After having it activated, you will find a “Terminal” app button under application menu.
  • Open it and you need to execute these commands (one command per line):
    • gconftool --recursive-unset /system/http_proxy
    • gconftool --recursive-unset /system/proxy
    • gconftool --recursive-unset /system/osso
I vaguely remember someone mentioning that there is another way of solving this twitter problem without nuking your connection settings. Please leave a comment if you have some ideas. Otherwise, for those that can't connect to twitter, this is the best solution we currently know.
