In addition to the [node:27246] that we’re rolling out on April 15-16, we’re bundling in a fix around an unexpected behavior when a user is following a protected account and is @mentioned by that protected account.
The incorrect behavior manifests in the following context:
- User X follows User Y (a protected user).
The User or Site Stream streaming on behalf of User X has the with=user parameter set
(which overrides the with=followings default behavior in that User Y's Tweet stream will not be presented to User X on the connection).
- User Y @mentions User X .
The incorrect behavior is that User X will not see the @mention by User Y.
After this fix, User X will see the @mention by User Y.
There is no change to the behavior in other contexts (for example, when using the default with=followings parameter, or if User X is not following User Y).
