Hi all I'm just starting to play with the User Streams with the aim of allowing it in addition to REST api.
I've had a stream open for most of the day looking at the received data and most of it looks pretty straightforward. When it comes to DM's, deletes, etc the message tells us that in the JSON. The one thing I haven't noticed is how mentions are displayed.... for example I receive a mention from someone I don't follow. This only appears on my Mentions API under REST and not my home timeline. When I connect over User Streams it seems to just come in as any other tweet. My question is how do I determine that this is a mention that shouldn't appear in my home timeline. Do I have to keep track of the initial friends message and compare the user id every time or is there something even simpler that I'm missing?
