I’m using the Streaming API to filter tweets by hashtag. I noticed an interesting occurrence. When I post a single tweet, the script listening to the streaming API doesn’t receive it. However, when I post another tweet that also matches the filter, the first tweet is received, but not the second one. If there is no second tweet, the first tweet is received quite a bit later (about an hour).
Is this the expected behavior? Am I missing a setting that forces the API to always hold on to one tweet or something?!
