High number of 403 errors when trying to download images contained in DMs


We are trying to download images contained in Direct Messages on behalf of our users but are seeing a bunch of 403 permission denied errors. The amount of errors we are seeing is greatly elevated today. Oddly sometimes we are able to download the images on behalf of a user, but then the next tweet from the same user results in an error.

We see the "Your credentials do not allow access to this resource” error, which is what I would expect if we weren’t sending along the user access tokens along with our app tokens, but we are indeed sending along all the tokens.

Anyone else having similar problems trying to download images from Direct Messages?
