After upgrading from 12.04 to 12.10 I got all entries of Online Accounts blank. See the screenshot:

online accounts

I tried to uninstall gnome-control-center-signon and install it back, but no luck. Is there any way to fix it or at least clear all the entries so I can add them again? By the way, I cannot add new entries as well, because the option list for account type is also empty.

Please help. Thanks.

I had the same problem, I solved by installing the "handler" suitable for all accounts that I had before upgrading. Search in synaptic: gwibber-service-name, something like gwibber-service-twitter and install those that are needed.
