recently I experience long delays (several hours) until a new status
of friends appears in the response of a statuses/friends call. The
users/show call for these friends already delivers the new tweet. This
behavior can be observed for a large number of users, however, only
for friends with protected status. For friends with public statuses,
these are always shown directly in the response. Even more strangely,
sometimes statuses/friends already delivers the new status in the JSON
response, but not in the XML response, or vice versa.
I filed an issue on this behavior several days ago (http://
code.google.com/p/twitter-api/issues/detail?id=1121) and would be
interested if others are having problems with this as well. Also, any
information on when this might be fixed would be highly appreciated.
Thank you very much and kind regards,
