500 Something is broken error


Hi Twitter community,

I am getting 500 something is broken error while hitting https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/mentions_timeline.json API endpoint.

I am not getting this error continuously.
I got it on 22nd Jan, 2017 and then the latest one on 31st Jan, 2017.

Example tweet: https://twitter.com/MoepiDance/status/827180079813779456
This is the account I am using: https://twitter.com/LINELIVE__JP

Can you please tell me what can be the issue with this?


Some endpoints may occasionally return errors, perhaps a backend deploy was in progress, you hit a different API instance / datacenter than usual, or the system was under heavy load. You should handle errors gracefully and retry after a short period.

You say you’re using the mentions timeline, but then provide an example Tweet. That Tweet loads fine for me via the API.
