Unfoundable Tweets return from User timeline API


#1

Now a days, I’m working to fetch some tweets by the specified user.
As below Tweet, in ‘user’ tag, the author is “16824146” who is @empireofthekop.
But when I login into Twitter, I didn’t found this Tweet on his home page.

When I do the search based on the content, I found the Tweets is posted by @atwinny
If this Tweet is retweet, but the ‘in_reply_to_status_id’ is null.
I also check this Tweets reply in web site, but I didn’t see @empireofthekop make a reply on this Tweet also.

I can’t understand why this Tweets listed in the user timeline API on user @empireofthekop

I also want to know, how to skip it, which attributes should I check? Thanks if somebody can help and give me some hints.
