Mention not returned by using mentions_timeline endpoint


#1

Hi,

I’m using the mentions_timeline endpoint to get mentions from @digaoi. Even though I get older mentions, I can’t get this one: https://twitter.com/WESCLEYSS/status/977164939042443265. I can even get the replies to it, but not this specific one.

It appears on search request too: https://twitter.com/search?f=tweets&vertical=default&q=%40digaoi&src=typd

Is there any reason why it should not be returned?

Thank you,

None of the standard API endpoints guarantee to return data in all circumstances. I can’t comment on why that individual Tweet may not appear, but it could be for a variety of reasons - filtering based on the authenticated user, eventual consistency between data centers and data stores, etc etc.
