I think there is a similar post in the discussion. A Twitter support person
appears to have responded directly to it.

Subject: [twitter-dev] XML API returning old DM timelines
I'm reposting a support email I sent to API support to see if anyone
else is facing the same issue:
1. Some users of SimplyTweet (iPhone app) are receiving old versions
of the DM timeline.
2. On a related note, I seem to be having the same issue with
SimplyTweet's servers (for push notification support) using since_id
too, where I get timelines including id < X (note: older) when I set
since_id = X
This seems to have started these 2 days. I have personally seen issue
1 at least twice on my iPhone (Singapore). As for issue 2, the servers
are hosted with Slicehost.
Is this a known issue?
