When Twitter goes down, the host is still reachable because they send the user to a page explaining that Twitter is over capacity. SimpiePie attempts to continue caching and therefore it breaks and shows nothing or an error.


Is this an HTML page? If so, I guess we should swap the order of content-type checking and cache invalidation.
