Hi Ryan,

These are generated when a user deletes a tweet from their timeline.

>From the documentation page [1]:

Streams may also contain status deletion notices. Clients are urged to
honor deletion requests and discard deleted statuses immediately. At
times, status deletion messages may arrive before the status. Even in
this case, the late arriving status should be deleted from your
backing store.
XML:  <delete><status><id>1234</id><user_id>3</user_id></status></delete>
JSON: { "delete": { "status": { "id": 1234, "user_id": 3 } } }
