The documentation states the following for the get_error method: get_error If the last request returned an error, the hashref containing the error message can be retrieved with get_error. This will provide some additional debugging information in addition to the http code and message above. However, a string with the serialized json is returned instead. Take the following script to reproduce: #!/usr/bin/env perl use Net::Twitter 2.06; use Data::Dumper; my $t = Net::Twitter->new( username => 'something', password => 'fake', ); $t->update(status => "mwahah!"); if($t->get_error) { die Dumper $t->get_error; } Output: $VAR1 = '{"request":"\\/statuses\\/update.json","error":"Could not authenticate you."}'; Which is an scalar string, not a hash reference.

This seems to be a bug in the get_error() function. It makes no effort to convert the returned json string into an object. Here is a potential fix. Again, I have no idea how patches should be handled (or if anyone is actually maintaining this code?) but here's the diff. Maybe it can get rolled into the module? # diff -c ~/.cpan/build/Net-Twitter-2.06-GvP7LS/lib/Net/ ~/.cpan/build/Net- Twitter-2.06-GvP7LS\ /lib/Net/ *** /Users/art/.cpan/build/Net-Twitter-2.06-GvP7LS/lib/Net/ 2009-02-11 10:52:18.000000000 -0800 --- /Users/art/.cpan/build/Net-Twitter-2.06-GvP7LS/lib/Net/ 2009-02-11 10:54:30.000000000 -0800 *************** *** 131,137 **** sub get_error { my $self = shift; ! return $self->{response_error}; } sub http_code { --- 131,137 ---- sub get_error { my $self = shift; ! return JSON::Any->jsonToObj ($self->{response_error}); } sub http_code {

This came about because during 2.x development, $self->{response_error} contained an already decoded hashref. When I added the code in the various methods to eval and trap JSON decode errors, the get_error sub didn't follow. This is actually fixed in the copy on my local machine that will become 2.07. Work has prevented me from finishing it, but it should be available shortly. Thanks, -C
