So we use POST media/upload
We get back a valid media ID from the API
We follow this up with a statuses/update and pass the returned media ID …
What I just described works.
But, when we get the media ID back, we store it with the tweet in that user’s data base… the next time we go to tweet this again (it is a scheduled tweet that say goes out once a day)… we do not upload the same image again… we see there is a media ID in our record so we just do the
statuses/update and pass the media ID we got yesterday … this does not work - it just posts the text and the photo is missing
Why is this?
I know it says photos are available for 60 minutes if not attached to a tweet… what does it mean “not attached to a tweet”? Isn’t statuses/update and passing the media ID attaching that photo to that tweet???
Not understanding why the second day the photo is missing…
anyone have any thoughts?
