Twitter timelines sometimes fail to load
In legacy/trac#3997 (closed), we went through a long litany of tests trying to get to the bottom of some transient twitter failures. In the past couple weeks, they appear to be back. Various queries fail more frequently for Tor, timelines often don't appear on first load attempt, etc.
I have tested Tor vs non-Tor in TBB, and the issue does not happen unless Tor is used as a SOCKS proxy.
I have not yet tested SOCKS vs non-SOCKS or high-latency vs low latency.
I should probably also test authenticated vs unauthenticated in Tor, for completeness.
I'm putting this in component Company because I suspect the Tor IPs could be victim to load balancer starvation on Twitter's end... But obviously I need to do a couple more tests first.
