I’m experiencing an odd issue when trying post a status update as a reply to a user’s tweet.
I have followed the instructions in the documentation to
@mention the user’s screen name in the text of the tweet and also use the
in_reply_to_status_id property. I actually get back a legit reply from the API which suggests that I posted a proper reply, but it does not appear on the mentioned user’s timeline.
Here’s the relevant part of the API response when posting the status update:
id_str: "a valid id" in_reply_to_screen_name: "target user's screen name" in_reply_to_status_id: 704991494340485xxx in_reply_to_status_id_str: "704991494340485xxx" in_reply_to_user_id: 85899xxx in_reply_to_user_id_str: "85899xxx"
