I had been in the habit of using "curl -D -" to get the header information from Twitter to tell me "Status 200" (or HTTP/1.1 200) before proceeding. It was the most reliable way that I knew of to make sure that Twitter was "functioning" before parsing the data that I got back from the API.
I can't figure out any way to get that information from twurl. So… how do I get a HTTP status back from Twitter while using twurl?
