    I'm writing a PHP script to create Twitter accounts, but I'm running into a problem.

    I can grab the CAPTCHA, feed it the response, and build the postvars. I've used Tamper in Firefox to get all the header information. I've tried a ton of variations on the Header fields, etc etc, but I keep getting 502 errors, "Twitter is over capacity" even though other queries I'm doing with the API and from my browser work fine.

    Has anyone successfully built a PHP/CURL Twitter account creator? I'm so frustrated by this I want to abandon the project.

    Help!

    Try putting a pause in the script in-between curl requests... a couple of sites i have built bots for in the past choke up on the curl.

    Just a thought...
