Public stream status deletions not appearing


Per the docs status deletions and location deletions are supposed to be sent out when a user deletes a tweet or the location meta data. I’ve been trying to test out my code but have yet to receive a single deletion message on a public stream. I’ve tried connecting to a stream, tweeting out something that was picked up by the stream then deleting the tweet a few minutes later to see if the deletion message would come through but have yet to see one. Any help on this issue would be appreciated.
