We are seeing an issue where searching for certain names using https://api.twitter.com/1.1/users/search.json results in no data being returned. From the debug logs it seems that the connection to twitter is established but for some reason the connection was closed unexpectedly with status code = 0 (AFAIK 0 is not a valid http status code).
This issue can be reproduced consistently while searching for a certain set of names. E.g. “Julia”, “Parin”. Also the failure rate is more prominent when searching for single words. e.g. https://api.twitter.com/1.1/users/search.json?per_page=20&q=Julia
Our production setup includes running play framework on a linux server to connect to twitter api via proxy.
We are not sure what is causing this issue, so we would like to know if someone else is experiencing the same issue.
