Hi everyone,

I’m playing around with the status_withheld event. (Docs.)

The ID of the tweet is only returned as an integer, not a string. Same for user ID. Also, the country code for one tweet was returned as XY.

Is this event still supported?

So far as I know this is a supported message type. I’d actually never noticed those discrepancies in the ways those values are represented, though. My guess is that this was code that was written quite a long time ago to generate those notices, and it hasn’t been updated. I don’t expect it to be changed in the immediate future.

Yeah, this is what I kind of expected to hear. It’s a shame, it would be very interesting to see these tweets.

Thanks anyway :slight_smile:
