Did twitter block my server?

I’m running a forum using Simple machines.

It has some function allowing users to embed tweets in their posts. This uses the twitter API to retrieve a tweet.

This worked fine for a long time, but since a few days i’m not getting any tweets anymore.

I’m getting an error stating the TCP connection reset by peer .
I have this part of code:

$tweet = 1163869660086861825;

$twitterapi_url = “https://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/oembed.json?id=”;

$twitterapi_url = $twitterapi_url . $tweet;

if (function_exists(‘curl_init’)) {

$curl = curl_init($twitterapi_url);

curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);


$response = curl_exec($curl);





On my server it generates the error, on other machines i tested on it returns the JSON as expected.
Did twitter block my server?

Hello there.
The first observation I have is that https://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/oembed.json is not a valid API URL. version 1 of the Twitter API was retired over 7 years ago. You should be using publish.twitter.com/oembed.json.
Since you say this has only just started happening, and you are seeing a TCP error, my suspicion is that your server is not compatible with TLS 1.2.
