Missing tweet from mentions_timeline

Hi,
We are unable to fetch a tweet with id 954077694060388352 using the mentions_timeline endpoint.

Request to timeline https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/mentions_timeline.json with since_id=954077638447910912, max_id=954077947517898758 and valid credentials received the following tweets:

and as you can see, there’s no tweet with id 954077694060388352.

I’ve tried tweaking the since_id and max_id params, but still this tweet is missing from the responses.
Trying to get only this tweet via endpoint https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/show.json is returning it correctly.

Why is it happening, how can i fetch this tweet?
Thanks in advance,
Lidiya

I’m unable to say with certainty. However, I would speculate that perhaps the Tweet has been filtered out of the timeline for quality or muting (depending on the authenticated user and their app settings), or that this may be a case of eventual consistency between the Tweet store in different data centers - similar to my previous response to you.

Note that the standard API timeline endpoints are not guaranteed to provide full fidelity at all times - if you require that level of data quality then the premium and enterprise search APIs are more appropriate for your use case.
