Twitter's Stream API is doing that chunked-encoding thing where it leaves the connection open, and the server streams content of unspecified size, Amos. Like, to avoid the latency with polling (which you just use the Twitter REST API to do). I think they keep their servers from getting swamped by limiting it to 1 open connection per userid.

And I think I remember reading it only supports GET, not POST, if that matters (probably doesn't at the Squid level -- the chunked encoding is probably enough to kill it, no?).

I am using Twitter Stream API with Squid proxy server. The program will
create a connnection with Twitter database, filter real time tweets and
print them out. I cannot get any output when using Squid proxy server.
