The App Store wants me to update the Twitter app using a different Apple ID that I don't recognize. I've never installed Twitter. When I enter my own Apple ID to either update or install that app, I get a window saying "Unknown Error". Clicking Ok, shows "There was an error in the App Store. Please try again later. (4)"

Is there anything I can do to get rid of this?

same issue here. Try the steps for reinstalling and uninstalling apps people don't have. – Stephen J Nov 26 '13 at 0:08
