I had been using BINARY(16) to store tweet id's in MYSQL. I can't find
a good resource to tell me the new data type I should use:
Reading the mysql documentation, I believe it should be unsigned
bigint - but would binary(64) be a better option?

I also read this comment against about BIGINT, with minimal comments.

Anybody storing tweet id's in MYSQL care to share what datatype
they're using?
