Get user_timeline endpoint fallbacks to TunnelBear


#1

Hello,
I have some weird problem with the endpoint:
https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/user_timeline.json?user_id=some_existing_user_id
provides the tweets of that some_existing_user_id which is the intended behaviour

but when I provide non existing user id:
https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/user_timeline.json?user_id=non_existing_user_id
I get tweets of… TheTunnelBear which is a surprise…

I was expecting some error message.
Am I doing something wrong?

It looks like it’s returning tweets from the currently authenticated user. You might have to validate the id with GET users/show first.
