SSL errors : "Unknown SSL protocol error in connection to api.twitter.com:443"


#1

Hello,

We’re seing some weird intermittent SSL errors towards the twitter API from some of our servers (but not all). These errors only happen with the twitter API.

I can easily reproduce it by running this ruby script :

100.times { p HTTP.get('https://api.twitter.com//1.1/statuses/update.json?include_entities=true') }

I’ll get the following error intermittently :

curl: (35) Unknown SSL protocol error in connection to api.twitter.com:443

Using OpenSSL 1.0.1e 11 Feb 2013

Have you seen this before ?

Thanks

I’m also having the issue. Created a stack overflow post with more details:

The only answer did not work.
