Reply tweet does not appear for user it was sent to



When I post a reply to a user from the api by starting the tweet with @username the tweet does not show up in the users timeline or notifications. The tweet was created successfully and I see it on the apps tweets and replies but the user can’t see it anywhere.

Here is a sample tweet I sent from the app to my personal account

That tweet is not in my mentions or my timeline and I can’t see it if I search for it. Here is part of the response I got back. Any help in why this might not be working would be greatly appreciated.
