Bug Description

Whenever I upload a photo to Twitter from my phone and then try to copy the same photo to my Ubuntu machine via MTP, the transfer freezes, along with my file manager (Thunar in my case). Unplugging and reconnecting the phone is the only way to get the file manager working again. Photos that have only been uploaded to other services (Tumblr and Facebook are the ones I have tested), but not to Twitter, do not cause this problem.

On one occasion I got a libmtp error message which read "object type doesn't support RepresentativeSampleData..", but I'm not 100% sure that this is related to the same issue.

I am attaching two copies of the same photo. One was copied via MTP before I uploaded it to twitter. The other, which was taken after uploading the photo to Twitter, would not transfer via MTP.
