I want to know the specification how twitter asigns an ID to every tweets.
I CAN get my tweet by rest API statuses/home_timeline, whose id is 896020509619404800 and status is “ugokanai…” .
But I CANNOT get it by statuses/show/:id though I specify the same id .
I try https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/show.json?id=896020509619404800
User authentication is done in all rquests .
Both requests result in responses of status “Rt @AmazingGrace: Every day …”. Not my tweet while its id is equall to my tweet 896020509619404800.
And more interesting, the latter tweet’s value of “id_str” is 896020509619404802 ! id differs from id_str .
How do I get my real tweet by statuses/show/:id ?
Which id is real ? - Does some Twitter database have/return wrong ids or id_strs?
