That is the problem. User ID's are not suppose to change, though in our DB we see the same screen name with a different User ID. Of the 5,000 users in the DB, some have 6 ID's, a few have 5, 4 and 3 ID's but many have 2 User ID's. We are talking 5,000 users being affected of 5 million users in our DB.
