Account/verify_credentials inconsistency fun




We recently gained access to our users’ email addresses via Twitter. Something that I’ve noticed is that while this: is fine, this: is not. Using a lower-case true works for both. We encountered this inconsistency while using a popular Python library, hence the uppercase ‘T’.



Thanks! we’ve actually noticed thanks to sleuthing from @abraham and others that the include_email parameter needs to be a string, not a boolean. This is inconsistent and irritating, and I can’t do anything than offer an apology for the behaviour, but we’ve noted it and hope that we can reduce confusion in future.
