@VioletChepil Tried linking my Twitter profile to the forums and got a error...
Is this functional,  or still a work in progress?
 {"errors":[{"code":215,"message":"Bad Authentication data."}]}

    @VioletChepil - mind helping @joltdude out (they accidently typo'd your name so you weren't getting tagged correctly)?
    People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.

    It happens! Hopefully she sees this now before she signs off for the day.

    To revert on this - I'm still looking into whether we can actually enable this functionality because of the way our SSO login process is working.
    I'll revert soon.

    OK finally, I have investigated and can report back.
    We will not be able to implement social profile Login because it will interfere with our single sign-on (SSO) integration. Thus some users will have accounts with Twitter/but not Fing etc. and it will cause problems! 
    I've now disabled all these options so you should not longer see them or get an error too. Let me know any additional feedback!
    Cheers

    Yes @joltdude I needed a bit investigation first! Thanks for flagging these sorts of things anyways :)
