User id lookup succeeds via REST API but fails via intent URL



I notice that I can look up a user by screen name, but when i use the direct link to look them up by userId on twitter, it doesn’t work. Do you know why this might be happening?

 twurl /1.1/users/lookup.json?screen_name=EatMorChikin | jq


This is not a supported API endpoint for querying the API. Web intents exist to support the Tweet button and other web embeds.


Thanks for the clarification!
