7.Twitter's direct messages don't work on Multtiple 1.1.1 or later.

Multtiple 1.1.1 or later says "authorization is required" on Twitter's direct messages screen.

Authorization screen

It's for spec changes on Twitter that direct messages requires extra authorization for applications. (This change starts on 2011/06/30. Please check their offical blog entry for more details.) Because of this changes, the accounts that are added on Multtiple 1.1.0 or older version requires authentication again to send or recieve direct messages.

Click the [Authorization again] button, and a dialog (same as the adding account) shows and follow the description on the dialog to authorize. After the authorization, you can use direct messages again.

This authorization requires once for each Twitter accounts that are added on Multtiple 1.1.0 or older version. And the new accounts that are added on the Multtiple 1.1.1 or later version don't have to authorization again.
