Statuses/update times out


#1

I’m using cURL with github.com/abraham/twitteroauth to send a tweet to https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/update.json. The curl_exec call times out. When I just do a wget of that URL it comes right back. I tried this with two accounts; with the first account I’ve been able to tweet thousands of times using this same setup and with the other a couple dozen, but neither worked this time. This is on a VPS so only my tweets should be coming from that IP. There was a similar issue that lasted for a couple of weeks a couple of months ago but it went away. Could this be a problem with my host or Twitter?
