exclude_reply_user_ids- Note that the leading @mention cannot be removed as it would break the in-reply-to-status-id semantics. Attempting to remove it will be silently ignored.
Including the in_reply_to_status_id in the the exclude_reply_user_ids array list causes reply to be send as tweet. (looks like twitter in that case completely ignores all values in the parameter and as a result reply shows up in tweets)
Expected - API should ignore the in_reply_to_status_id in the exclude_reply_user_ids array list and it should be reply.
