Rule for determining duplicate status updates


Is there a published rule somewhere for how twitter determines duplicate status updates? If so, please share. Thanks.


@episod Taylor Singletary
We don’t publish the exact conditions for duplicate status detection and they’re subject to change over time. They aren’t necessarily time-based but tweet-based instead, whereas no duplicates may exist in X amount of Tweets.


New to twitter, getting message saying duplicate status, what do I do and where do I go?
To solve this, thanks
