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?
