Error 403 when using second account in SourceTree

Long time Sourcetree user, but only ever with a single account. I was attempting to setup a second account with a work email address and test out the Google Rooms Atlas bot, but scratch that... The Sourcetree app would not allow me to access my newly setup demo Repo on my newly setup second account. The first account (my private hobby account) still worked fine as expected, but SourceTree failed to authenticate when a second account was tied to it. And I couldn't exactly demo my remake of Atari's classic Asteroids to my work mates... Well, I mean I could... but then they'd start to wonder what they're actually paying me for... ehem.

Anyway, I have no idea how to troubleshoot this, it's frustrating as heck and I'm close to giving up. Even tried a clean uninstall of Sourcetree, but no go.

For the record, error reads (replace hashes with my other account);

Command: git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false --no-optional-locks ls-remote
Error: remote: You'll need to authenticate with a valid app password. You can create an app password from your account at
fatal: unable to access '': The requested URL returned error: 403

I cross checked both the OAuth in my old and new accounts, they look as expected? And the Sourcetree has the OAuth green light on both accounts... I'm at a loss. I don't understand why Source tree and authentication has been setup to be so confusing. Surely it's not unusual for users to have two different bitbucket accounts, one for work, one for play? Or two or more for different clients? ... I'll stop my whinging, hopefully someone can help.
