Why is screen_name case sensitive?


Why is the screen_name parameter is case sensitive when screen names themselves are case insensitive?


What endpoint is this? It might be an issue with the library you’re using - i just tried users/show with screen_name and it’s not case sensitive


Sorry that was my mistake. I was using api.twitter.com/1.1/users/lookup.json to look up multiple screen names. I was comparing my cased screen name with the one returned so they were sometimes not matching.


Would it make sense to add another entry that would include the screen name in the same case that was provided by the screen_name parameter?
