Https:// throws error today - unable to download ids.json from


The api/ ids.json has stopped returning json results and now just throws error “unable to download ids.json from” please retry later

So now cannot get friends or followers for a twitter account ?

Is this due to recent change - or is it a bug/issue


Note - not just this one twitter name is failing - seems all we try throw same error.


same error on followers


crome reports

“error”:“Rate limit exceeded. Clients may not make more than 150 requests per hour.”,“request”:"/1/followers/ids.json?cursor=-1&screen_name=

but IE just fails. So maybe this just request failure without clear handling in IE


What are you exactly trying to accomplish? The web browser isn’t the best tool for exploring the API. The last error message you receive indicates that you’ve made more unauthenticated requests then you are allocated per hour.
