Why we a timeline conversation push different thread ID's?


Sometimes when we have a Tweet that is part of a threaded timeline conversation, we will receive a different thread ID, which breaks the cohesion of our application. Does anyone know either:

  • A way to mitigate this from our side, or…
  • A reason why this occurs?

Thanks for the help!


Can you please define “thread ID” - this is not a Tweet property I’m familiar with. Thank you.


Hey Andy,

Thanks for the reply! Sorry for the confusion…we use the phrase “thread ID”, y’all use data-conversation-id.


Hi Andy,

Just wanted to know if there was any update on this! Thanks!


Is this on Twitter for Websites in the HTML markup? that’s not a value inside a Twitter API object.
