I’ve created a small program to clear my favorites, and while it worked for the first few thousands (keeping within limits of 15 calls of 200 favorites per 15 minutes) I’ve noticed some strange behaviour:
I had 29k favorites on my account.
- It sometimes returned less than 200, sometimes 180, sometimes 193. I have not caught it returning 200 while debuggin.
- After reaching a certain point, it stopped returning any results. My profile page is showing 17.7k favorited items (though it shows the “You haven’t favorited any Tweets yet.” message as well).
This leads me to think that it returns cached favorite results only, and even then, the query might be slightly buggy.
I am using TweetSharp .net implementation.
