I just ran your exact code, and was able to pull an xml string just fine, so I do not believe it is your code. The only thing I can think is you may want to curl_close() the connection, perhaps there is some caching or other similar thing in effect, though that is a big long shot.

Correct, error 0 means no data was returned, and that the timeout in curl was hit, which I have set to 10 seconds. I am seeing about 5 of these per Admin block 24 hours, out of around 300 calls per 24 hours. I see a lot more of them when I see more of the 502 errors, which seems to tell

I am not sure I understand the confusion, the API is 140 characters exactly in the query string. You can run this, don't run it often, or put a sleep 1; in the loop if you do. #!/bin/bash # This script assumes you pre url encode your data. # Request url

You are sending in empty query terms, if you stop doing that, it will stop reporting that error. for example, if you find on = and replace with =x on your query, you get Sorry, your query cannot be more than 140 characters long (it is 168 characters).. I do not think you should be

Yes, it seems a bit of a mess, but rely on the API, and the responses it gives you. The web based advanced search is a nice way to do a quick visual test, but as you have seen, can spit out some bizarre things. I think the bash script will help you definitively answer anything you need
