Themeleon isn't working with Twitter. Need a fix please.

Last week the Themeleon patterns/palettes worked just fine with my Twitter account. Now I have decided to change it up with a different design/palette but I can't get any of the patterns I chose to show up on my Twitter account. I pick the background pattern I want, pick my palette and then hit the Themeleon's "Save Profile" button. But when it takes me back to my Twitter page, what I have chosen is not there. I've made numerous attempts and have wasted a lot of time but with no success. Agh! It's been doing this for 2 days now. What's going on, Themeleon? Any help with be appreciated!

Themeleon isn't working with my twitter account! My profile looks awful! please fix it
I'm a new user, but I've tried themeleon on twitter many times now and nothing works. I just get a block of one color, not the pattern whatsoever. I took a look at that link and tried quite a few times to no avail. Seems like I just wasted a ton of time. I don't understand why a simple pattern would be too complex for twitter to load, since it already loads my even more complex photos for background images.
The guide states:

"From time to time, Twitter's API has trouble accepting background images from us. The best solution we see as of now is to try again in a few minutes, or possibly to clear your cookies and cache."

Or .... if one doesn't enjoy bashing one's head into a brick wall, one could do this:

1. Go into Themeleon.
2. Choose one's theme as if everything worked,

but then ..

3. When one sees the preview page, showing one how one's page on Twitter will supposedly look with the new background, right click on the background, and choose "save background as"

4. In Twitter, click on the little gear in the upper right hand corner of the screen and select "settings" from the drop down menu.

5. Click on the button marked "design"

6. Where you see the words "customize your own", click on "change background" and then upload what you just downloaded from Themeleon.




I hope I didn't overexplain this, but I thought that nellAAruAl had already had frustration enough, and so I didn't want to leave anything unclear. What I described is what I did a few hours ago, and it worked.

I tried that and the background won't load in Twitter.
