jtwitter library: connecting to alternative service fails


omg I clearly should take a break... logcat gives these errors and as
it seems the catch-block is also executed but the messages are
actually sent as I have verified by visiting the page:

Actually a thing that took me 2 hours to get aware of.. can someone
please tell me why the app still wants to connect to twitter too?

I am following this tutorial from MarakanaTechTV: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-P1eiRy-klk&feature=relmfu

It's about building a twitter-like client but for simplicity (avoiding OAuth) its useing its own service located here: http://yamba.marakana.com/ username is student and password is password.

here is my code:

public void onClick(View v) {
final String statusText = editStatus.getText().toString();

//zeitkritische Aufgaben wie z.b. networking oder DB Zugriff dürfen nicht im main-thread laufen
//App crashed sonst
new Thread() {
public void run() {
try {
Twitter twitter = new Twitter("student", "password");
} catch (Exception e) {
Log.e("error", "DIED", e);


Log.d("StatusActivity", "onClicked! with text: " + statusText);

and here is what logcat gives me:

It seems that the app tries to connect to twitter despite the fact that it should connect to the marakana-service because of this line:

I also faced the same issue. My mistake was I forgot to remove the code for Toast from the catch block
