I have seen some inconsistency with my desktop app(Oauth) which is not whitelisted Adding a tweet to favorite does not update the X-RateLimit value. Also If i remove a tweet from my favorites ( favorites\destroy), i get 404 error (But this is removed from favorites) and the ratelimit is reset even though i have not consumed all 150 calls. Basically All deletes (i have seen this for status\destory, dm\destroy, favorites\destroy for recent tweets) are giving 404. But they get deleted successfully. X-RateLimit is behaving strange w.r.t favorites
