hmm - you may be tripping over a known issue where we don't update the
"status objects" coming from the api correctly.  if you do a users/show call
and look at your account, did that get updated after you upload?

just to give some background - we embed the user object inside the status
object in the API (if you call any one of the timelines and get an array of
status objects back, you'll notice that each has the full details of the
user inside).  its actually an expensive-ish operation for us to invalidate
all those objects in your entire timeline when you change something in your
user object.  we're currently still working out ways around that issue.
