I created a website that relies on an Perl script that queries Twitter every hour and download tweets of 130 different users. As you can see, it is below the rate limit (130 queries per hour). I’m using the Twitter::Lite API to query Twitter. The application downloads the tweets to a database and creates a local search where I can find patterns in the information. It is not authenticated. It was working without any problems since last may until friday where a connection time out began to show up. To download the information I increased the execution rate of the script from once per hour to 12 times per hour (once each five minutes). On monday (today) the error changed from connection time out to connection reset by peer. The guys at support said that my fixed IP is not black listed, but I don’t know what the problem is. Can somenbody help me? I’ve tryed authenticating the application but the problem remains.
