It does not work

I do not know what i am during wrong. I ended up copying the code from android studio but it does not work.

Even if i run the code before i have added anything to the original code i get a iLegalArgumentError.

public class MainActivity extends Activity {
    TwitterClient twitterClient = new TwitterClient();

    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

      Runnable runnable = new Runnable() {
        public void run() {

      Thread thread = new Thread(runnable);
