Visibility of /mentions


Hello Team,

As per the ‘GET statuses/mentions_timeline’ documentation, ‘The timeline returned is the equivalent of the one seen when you view your mentions on (’

This works as expected. But we do see some user mentions, that are missing from ‘mentions on Twitter’ & mentions_timeline both.
For an example:
User ‘sammisalami2’ mentions user ‘dezinebank’ in the post:
But this post is not visible in mentions_timeline as well as mentions on twitter for user ‘dezinebank’.

Could you please help in clarifying that which mentions will be visible and which will not be visible. How does twitter decides that?

Thanks & regards,
