@Anywhere is just another javascript application - it shouldn't use id. Of course, when you inspect the object returned by @Anywhere you'll get the wrong values as well.

Someone from Twitter should look into the favorite() one, it shouldn't be doing that.

Some examples:

id:             78578304315179000
id_str:         "78578304315179009"

id:             78574658827460600
id_str:         "78574658827460608"

The IDs being used at twitter.com seem to be those of id_str.

But why then is @Anywhere erroneously using the id when calling e.g. 
favourite() ?

They aren't different. JavaScript can't handle large numbers (I think the limit 
was at 53 bits) so there's an id_str as well, to avoid this issue. In 
JavaScript, always use id_str.

(Reposting from the twitter-anywhere-dev group.)

In an @Anywhere application we are building at http://tweetshow.nu/ we would 
like to use the (as of yet unofficial and unsupported) in-browser 
object-oriented wrappers for the REST API for marking statuses as favourites.

However, there seems to be some confusion with respect to the ids in the 
generated requests.

Specifically, when we call someStatus.favourite() in our application, we see 
this (failed) request:

        • Request URL: 
https://api.twitter.com/1/favorites/create/77973769376894980.json
        • Request Method: POST
        • Status Code: 404 Not Found

On the other hand, if we favourite the same status directly at 
http://twitter.com/, we see this request:

        • Request URL: 
http://api.twitter.com/1/favorites/create/77973769376894976.json
        • Request Method: POST
        • Status Code: 200 OK

Notice that the ids don't match, even though it's the same status.

Inspecting the status object, I noticed that both ids occur:

        • attributes: Object
                • contributors: null
                • coordinates: null
                • created_at: "Tue Jun 07 05:42:49 +0000 2011"
                • favorited: false
                • geo: null
                • id: 77973769376894980
                • id_str: "77973769376894976"
                • in_reply_to_screen_name: null
                • in_reply_to_status_id: null
                • in_reply_to_status_id_str: null

It leaves me wondering:
Why is "id" different from "idStr"?
Why does the @Anywhere API seem to use the wrong attribute in generating the 
request?

Any hints would be much appreciated.

Best regards
Christian
