Given a user id and a tweet id from the rest API, what is the correct
and consistent way to generate a link directly to the source tweet?

something like "!/<USER_ID>/status/<TWEET_ID>"
works _sometimes_, in some cases. Sometimes it depends on whether a
user is logged in or not, and sometimes it actually leads to the wrong
tweet as the TWEET_ID is numerically of by a few steps compared to the
link you get form the twitter web page. Also sometimes USER_ID has to
be replaces by the users twitter name for it to work.

So far I have not had any luck getting this to consistently work. I
really hope I am missing something simple and someone here can give me
a pointer in the right direction.
