Status is a duplicate


When I post a link using api I got the error as ‘Status is a duplicate’. How can I remove the duplicate?
My url is =>I’m listening to 02__travelling_lady.mp3 with LetsListen!join me


Twitter checks messages if they are duplicates of the previous and does not accept them a second time.

So for testing you need to generate new messages (=content) each time.

This is documented somewhere at Twitter, but you can also read about on other sites.

Delete your last status update via Twitter web and run the script again. Or include date(‘r’) or md5(mt_rand()) with your status message to generate a different one each time the script is run.


how does one include that in a status? I am trying to have an arduino post temps…


Where is it documented? Could you please provide the link?


in POST statuses/update

For each update attempt, the update text is compared with the authenticating user’s recent tweets. Any attempt that would result in duplication will be blocked, resulting in a 403 error. Therefore, a user cannot submit the same status twice in a row.

The error (code 187) is documented in the status codes page.
