No setter of KinveyClient to authorize in Twitter | Android

Dear Kinvey support team, we have met an issue with Twitter authorization.

When trying login via Twitter, we get NPE of KinveyClient instance.

It turned out that there is no setter of KinveyClient instance in “Login” class constructor, which is used for executing LoginTwitter task.

Screenshots are here:


Hello Michael,


Thank you for providing a great details regarding this problem. I have given this problem an initial look and we had a conversation with Kinvey Engineering. We have some additional questions.


  • What is the name and KID of the app Kinvey backend environment that you are working in? You can send the KID to me directly via email at billy@kinvey.com so that you don't have to post it here publicly.
  • What type and version number of Kinvey SDK are you using? I think you are using the Android SDK, correct?
  • Can you provide the exact steps that you are using to reproduce this problem?
  • Can you tell us if you used the following section in the users' guide to set up your Twitter integration. We're trying to determine if there is anything wrong with the documentation as well.

We look forward to hearing back from you.

Hello Michael,


We have determined that this problem is a bug in our Android SDK. This issue has been escalated to Engineering and we have asked for prioritization into an upcoming release of the Android SDK.


We will confirm as soon as a target release has been identified.


To assist with the prioritization, can you share the impact of this problem on your development efforts? Are you able to work around this or is it a significant impediment to progress? Anything that you can share with respect to impact will be helpful in our prioritization efforts.
