Favorite events out of date


We currently use user streams to detect when a tweet of ours is favorited, I.E. a favorite event on our user stream.

On such events we inspect the event.target_object to get the current total for favorite_count.

Since this is a favorite event, one would expect the total to include the favorite that caused the event, and it usually does, but I’ve seen examples where the event.target_object.favorite_count does not include the favorite that is causing this event.

Is this anomaly expected behavior?
