Tweepy Stream ConnectionError



I am having an issue to connect to using Tweepy Stream class. I am using a proxy.

Here is the code snippet:
myStream = tweepy.Stream(auth, listener=myStreamListener, proxy=‘my_proxy’)

Using the proxy I am able to connect to “” and pull the tweets. However, when Tweepy Stream is used, it throws the connection error.

Need some help here please?

ConnectionError: HTTPSConnectionPool(host=‘’, port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: /1.1/statuses/filter.json?delimited=length (Caused by NewConnectionError(’<requests.packages.urllib3.connection.VerifiedHTTPSConnection object at 0x000000000BC3CEB8>: Failed to establish a new connection: [Errno 10060] A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond’,))

Thanks in advance!
