I have a service that polls the Search API every few minutes. I'm
passing since_id to pick up only new tweets since the last time that I

Let's say at time t1 I pick up a tweet X. At time t2, I'll poll with
since_id>=ID(X). If X has been deleted in the meantime, I can see no
way to detect that using since_id.

Basically, I'm getting complaints that deleted tweets continue to show
up in our app. Is there a way for me to detect this?

Also, can I safely assume that status IDs monotonically increase?
