extract line from a text file

Hi, I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure this error message out. This little script is supposed to tweet my laptop's IP address, as a cron job, I'm hopeful that it would do so even if it's stolen. This is a variant of one that works, but this doesn't, and I can't see a difference in the curl line of either one.
wget http://www.whatismyip.org/ 
TWEET=`sed -n 1p index.html`                        
             curl --basic --user "$user:$pass" --data-ascii \"status=$TWEET"  "http://twitter.com/statuses/update.json"
             rm -f index.html                                         
This is the error message.

curl: (6) Could not resolve host: status=; Cannot allocate memory
{"request":"/statuses/update.json","error":"Client must provide a 'status' parameter with a value."}
Why does curl think the status is the URL?
