Tomorrow, Wednesday September 29, at 10:00 AM PDT / 17:00 UTC, we will briefly introduce a field called new_id to statuses delivered over the Streaming API. If this 10 minute test is successful, we will enable the new_id field continuously on Thursday September 30th at about the same time. Note that timelines returned by the REST and Search APIs will not contain this field. This new_id field will allow applications to preview the new status id generation scheme before the primary key transition scheduled for Tuesday October 12th.
