There is a problem when users try tu authenticate a twitter account.

To reproduce this bug:

  1. Open the Twitter config page in an overlay i.e.: http://example.com/#overlay=admin/config/services/twitter
  2. Click the Authenticate account button
  3. Apparently, nothing happens. The page loads an empty overlay.

Using the normal URL http://example.com/admin/config/services/twitter, it works fine and redirects to the twitter auth page.

Problem comes from the drupal_goto call from line 317 in twitter.pages.inc file. There is a bug related to the overlay behavior when redirecting to external pages(#1152314: overlay doesn't close when drupal_goto redirects to an external URL).

Applying the workaround proposed in this issue, this annoying behavior is removed.

Attaching patch.
