Old Mentions Getting Fetched



Our product fetches 200 tweets at a time (up to 5 times with 1000 messages total). We pass through since_id with the latest message id within our system and we set a max id as we go so we can paginate through the messages. We’ve recently encountered a problem where we hit the mentions_timeline endpoint and received back mentions that were EXTREMELY old (from 2011). After this problem was notified to us, we ran the exact same code, and it goes back only to September of 2014 for this specific user.

I was wondering if there had been any changes made to the mentions_timeline endpoint or if there is something that could cause a mention to show up in the most recent 1000 mentions all of a sudden.

Thanks in advance
