Twitter app on 8.1 Broken

Anyone have any difficulties with the Twitter app on 8.1 not working? I cant log into the app, it gives me a message saying "Unable to make that request, please try again later" after I put in my details. I've uninstalled and reinstalled a few dozen times hoping it'll just fix itself, but I cant get it to work again. I refreshed my windows machine with a restore but that didn't work either. Is it a corrupt user file that needs to be flushed out or something. I'm at my wits end here, as no other twitter app suits my needs.
