My GaragebBot tweets when doors are opened or closed:

The tweets are of the form:

tweet 1: Door 2 opened
tweet 2: Door 2 closed manually
tweet 3: Door 1 opened
tweet 4: Door 2 opened
tweet 5: Door 2 closed automatically
tweet 6: Door 1 closed manually

The behavior up until a few days ago was duplicates were defined as
tweet N+1 being identical to the prior tweet N, but now there appears
to be some kind of cache where "tweet 4" above fails with a "403
duplicate tweet" error even though it is not a duplicate of the most
recent tweet (but is the same message as tweet 1, but a different in
time, so thus meaningful).

In this case, the garage only tweets about 6 different messages and it
has been doing so for several years, with great success, but now
almost all tweets are being rejected as duplicates.

I could change it to put some random garbage at the end of each new
tweet, but that doesn't seem very elegant.
