Twitter replies occasionally not threading


#1

Hello,

We have a client has noticed that replies sent from our product occasionally do not thread correctly on twitter.

For example the client replied to this twitter post: https://twitter.com/serchfirewall/status/585856596217040896 from within our app, and when you view that post on twitter it does not show any replies.

However if you look at her reply directly here: https://twitter.com/serchfirewall/status/585856596217040896

It does show it is connected (threaded) to the above tweet.

Here is the response we got back from twitter after the reply was posted:

</twitter-status>

As you can see, Twitter says it has a parent, and that parent is the correct parent post. This would indicate that it is an reply. Why then is it not showing up as an @reply on the post?
