User stream user_update event not firing on profile/background image update


#1

I have setup a userstream monitorning my account which is listening on user_update event. The event is only firing when I change text fields (name, bio, location, website). The event does not fire on a profile photo change or a header photo change.

I was wondering the status of user_event being fired on image changes?

The data below was received when I updated my name. The interesting part is that I had a profile photo set and saved before the update below, and the update is showing null values on my profile_image_url
