Time out on pbs.twimg.com


Since several days, I’m facing issues (time out) accessing ressources on pbs.twimg.com (css and media) after a certain amount of accesses.

Is there a kind of rate limit using this hostname URL ?


pbs.twimg.com is resolving to (ECS) and (Varnish)

The first one seems giving more time out than the second one.


Are you loading assets directly? Which Twitter for Websites products are you using and experiencing timeouts for pbs.twimg.com assets used by those buttons or widgets?


I’m not using a Twitter for Websites product.
I’m consuming Tweets from the Stream API and downloading pictures (avatars and medias) for caching purpose.

Thx for your help
