@user1 posts status : '@ user2 some text @ user3’
reply to this status using the extended tweet format:
‘status’: ‘some reply text’,
Exected result (by me, at least):
the reply status will only mention the user that posted the status the reply is made for: '@ user1 some reply text’
‘auto_populate_reply_metadata’ adds ALL the handlers mentioned to the reply status, so the actual reply is: ‘@ user1 @ user2 @ user3 some reply text’.
Can someone say if this is the desired behavior for ‘auto_populate_reply_metadata’?
To me this just seems problematic, similar to what I posted a couple of days ago here concerning the behaviour for replying to retweets.
At least, is there any extensive documentation concerning ‘auto_populate_reply_metadata’ available anywhere ? (since the only ‘relevant’ information is from the new changes announcement on the dev twitter site.)
