Random behavior on User Streams API when a protected user mentions




  1. Prepare two accounts.
  2. Make one of them (account A) protected.
  3. Make sure that they follow each other.
  4. Tweet with unprotected account (account B) with this format: “@null @B test” (assuming that B is not following @null)
  5. Result: signal, or no signal. No consistency.
