media_ids parameter is invalid


#1

We are receiving a strange 400 error in the logs when trying to post to 1.1/status/update_with_media.json

{“errors”:[{“code”:44,“message”:“media_ids parameter is invalid.”}]}

It doesn’t really make sense as there is no media_ids parameter. Has anyone else seen this?


#2

I’ve also started receiving this error. Very strange because one day it worked, and the next day it didn’t. Did you ever figure out the cause?

EDIT: I figured out where I was having the problem. I was using the Tweepy library and had to update the API.update_status() call from update_status(my_tweet) to update_status(status=my_tweet) due to a change in Twitter’s API

Please note that the update_with_media endpoint is deprecated and the upload endpoint should be used instead to upload media that then can be attached to a Tweet.
