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.

For more information on our status id transition:
