Am I the only one seeing this? I call the Streaming API 10x/hour. For the last 23 hours or so, I've been getting bad responses every time.
I use a cron job to call from the Linux shell: curl --user myid:mypassword --silent --fail --max-time 3 --retry 0 http://stream.twitter.com/1/statuses/sample.xml and I get usually a curl return code "(52) Empty reply from server", though sometimes "(6) name lookup timed out". Same thing happens when I ask for .json instead of .xml. The failures started at the rate of 1-2/hour on 2009/11/13 09:00h UTC (Friday early morning PST), though they became continuous as of 200/11/14 03:24h UTC (Friday evening PST), and remain continuous. Is anyone else calling this API and failing? Or succeeding? in the last 24 hours?
