Hi Andrew,

Thanks for your question. You can file any issues with the docs on
dev.twitter.com on the api-issues list [1]. The list has a component-
docs which you can mark the issue with.

We're working on a number of issues with the docs at the moment and
hope to have them and the rest of the docs from the apiwiki updated
and correct in the next few weeks. Thanks for your patience.

Matt
