    I was having problems with Twitter so changed my password.
    But I enter my Twitter name and new password but it says password or name is wrong.
    I know the name is right and the password is exactly the one I changed to.
    The weird thing is that I can still get into Twitter on a mainframe computer through a shortcut on my desktop (except that half my profile is greyed out).
    Please what can I do?
    I am non-techie so please explain in simple terms
    Many thanks

    use your email address not the user name

    you can log in to twitter using either user name or email address

    email address is safer than user name
    Many people get confused by user name and display name, which can be different on twitter
    you cannot log in using the display name only by user name. That is the bit after the @ do not use the @ in the user name box
