So I've been using a function for quite awhile that posts a status update to a twitter feed hourly.

On 2 of my agents it's working fine. On the 3rd, strangely today (after months of working) it returns the following error:

12/31/2011 12:37:54 PM,Task 'HourlyGopsReporter' running on agent 'MGMTFV' failed because: Twitter failed (Error : There was an error deserializing the object of type Twitterizer.TwitterStatus. Encountered unexpected character '<'.)(Step 36)

There isn't a < in any of the text it's updating.

Any ideas?

Twitter post:
%Time()% %SiteAbbr% Net= $%ds.Value%

if this odd behavior persists, maybe you could log the variables contents to some file prior to the twitter action to see what they really look like on that 3rd computer ?

Maybe it was linked to the New Years Eve Twitter problem reported here ?
