I've found that all of my 500 isses are related to "poison users." For whatever reason, I can never get their followers. I retry on 500, so I end up with an infinite loop of 500s for these users. When 500s happen with other users, my program usually succeeds after 1 or 2 retries.
The only way to resolve it is to kill my process, add the user to a blacklist, and start over. It's really frustrating.
