We took at look at this issue. We have some HTTP based patterns for twitter.com<http://twitter.com> but not for HTTPS. It is possible that you are experiencing this issue. We have plans to add the HTTPS patterns of twitter.com<http://twitter.com> on one of future releases.

Thank you for bringing it to our attention.

Hello everyone,

I am continuing with my tests of OpenAppID.

I write this rules in my file local.rules:

"alert tcp any -> any any (msg:"Skype traffic"; appid: skype_auth skype; sid:1000007; rev:2;)

alert tcp any -> any any (msg:"Twitter traffic"; appid: twitter; sid:1000008; rev:1;)

alert tcp any -> any any (msg:"Linkedin traffic"; appid: linkedin; sid:1000010; rev:1;)"

My system is well configured for my network and these rules.

I run Snort with the next command:
"snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -i wlp3s0 -A console"

When I access Linkedin or Skype I can see alerts in the console, but when I access Twitter I can not see any alert.

The strange thing is that if I search on Google twitter4j I get Twitter alert:
"11/05-19:11:16.730634  [**] [1:1000008:1] Twitter traffic [**] [Priority: 0] [AppID: twitter] {TCP}<> -><>"

And I have the next log:

Is it correct this working?

Thank you very much,
