#include <IE.au3>

Local $oIE = _IECreate("https://twitter.com/login?username_or_email=xxxxx")

while _IELoadWait($oIE)=false
    Sleep(100)

Local $ofield = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "session[password]")

_IEAction( $ofield , "focus")

but it failed

please help

You are using the wrong command to retrieve an input element. You'll need to get a reference to the form object first using _IEFormGetObjByName. Then you'll using this reference to retrieve the form element using _IEFormElementGetObjByName. Something like this:

#include <IE.au3>

Local $oIE = _IECreate("https://twitter.com/login?username_or_email=xxxxx")

Local $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, 1)
Local $oField  = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "session[password]")
_IEAction( $oField , "focus")

Looks like I was grabbing the wrong form. This appears to work for me --

#include <IE.au3>

Local $oIE = _IECreate("https://twitter.com/login")

Local $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, 2)
Local $oField  = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "session[username_or_email]")
_IEFormElementSetValue($oField, "xxxxx")
$oField  = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "session[password]")
_IEFormElementSetValue($oField, "yyyyy")
_IEFormSubmit($oForm)
