While we occasionally have update latency events (I think there was one yesterday afternoon for a bit of extra latency over a few tens of minutes), nearly all updates are applied to nearly timelines within a few seconds. The common case is even less latency. Some variance can be expected when a user with millions of followers updates -- there may be a period of many seconds before the last follower gets updated -- but not typically hours.
I suspect that something else is wrong. Is the timestamp on the status correct, or is it delayed too? If it's delayed, perhaps you are running into a posting limit and there's a corner-case error condition that your HTTP client isn't logging and alerting? -John Kalucki http://twitter.com/jkalucki Services, Twitter Inc.
