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?
