Security error while trying to visit https://twitter.com
WebKit 535.7 (@103989)

Since today, I'm not able to visit twitter.com site, via https.
Previously, I had the option to proceed anyway. Now, I don't - all I have is the "Back" button.
The error message:
The site's security certificate is not trusted!
You attempted to reach twitter.com, but the server presented a certificate issued by an entity that is not trusted by your computer's operating system. This may mean that the server has generated its own security credentials, which Google Chrome cannot rely on for identity information, or an attacker may be trying to intercept your communications. You should not proceed, especially if you have never seen this warning before for this site.
Needless to say, https://twitter.com works like charm in both Firefox and IE (amazingly!).
I've tried all of the usual stuff: check my system date, cleared the cache, etc. but it's not going away.
While I appreciate the efforts of Chrome to protect me, I would at least expect to give me the option to proceed.2012-01-20
OK, here's an update and a bit of workaround - go to another browser, login, and from the Twitter settings remove the force-check of using SSL whenever possible. Then, you will be able to access it through Chrome, although it's not really preferable to have your password sent over un-encrypted session.
After you choose HTTP only, of course, Chrome will let you in. Then, you can go inside the Profile -> Settings in Twitter, and check the option of forced usage of SSL - this way, the certificate will be still presented as Not Trusted, but you will be at least able to view the page.
HTH, somehow, though it appears that the criteria for trusted or Good certificate are different across browsers.
starting to be annoying. chrome, hello??
Honestly, I don't know what the issues are, as far as I know, Chrome's certificate management is purely a wrapper around the Windows native, but I haven't had that issue with other browser.
Also, I'm not sure why would Twitter use scrambled certificate. It appears OK with FF.
I have also cleared all of Twitter's cookies, added both twitter.com and https://twitter.com to my exceptions list, cleared my cache. When you click on the details of the certificate, and then click on Certification Path, it says at the bottom under Certification Status, that "This certificate is ok."
It might take a while to complete, but it works immediately after that with no restart required.
Still annoying, though ..
i loved chrome b/c it was the fastest browser for my old computer
i even removed chrome and reloaded it and nothing
empty cache nothing!
i have done every step listed and still cant load twitter!
Not until now! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I also want to mention that there is a Twitter extension for Chrome which I had loaded awhile back and it never worked until just a day or so ago, and it mysteriously started working. It's kind of a nifty little thing. But, I still wasn't able to get on Twitter the conventional way, till now.
Google REALLY needs to fix this, because most people will have no clue as to how to remedy it, unless they search the problem and come here and then follow the thread all the way down!
