I think the problem is missing quotes and URL encoding. Try curl … -d "track=harry+potter"

How do I track a phrase like "harry potter"? The docs only show how to track individual words, not phrases ... and this curl command doesn't work properly because it finds tweets with "harry" and not "potter": curl -o /home/ken/twitterStreamJSON.txt http://stream.twitter.com/track.json -u username:password -d track=harry potter, ____________________ Owkaye
