Has the Duplicate Tweet rules changed? See 10x increase in rejections



Has the rules determining what is a duplicate tweet changed? Since 11 Nov I’ve noticed a 10x increase in the number of tweets rejected due to duplicate status errors.

Nothing has changed with my software. We use twitter4j to send tweets. After checking a random sampling of the rejected messages, none of them appear to be duplicates of a message sent to the same account in the last 24 hours.

I have found exactly the same. All my website’s members are angry. Like you, nothing changed at my end.
