Hey all,

I've been using the Python Twitter Tools library to access the API,
which is beautiful and great to use but as far as I can tell has no
systematic error handling.  There is no distinction between temporary
errors (e.g., connection failed, rate limit exceeded, etc) and
permanent ones (e.g, user account deleted).  Furthermore, library
itself doesn't even return the error code--just a chunk of unparsed
HTML that it gets from Twitter.  So, it pretty much means that error
handling is a roll-your-own kind of issue.  Have any of you found good
ways of dealing with this problem?  Do other Twitter libraries provide
better error handling?  (Hopefully other Python libraries do this
better, but I would be willing to switch languages if necessary).

Thanks in advance,
