Why is screen_name case sensitive?


#1

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


#3

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


#4

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.


#5

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?
