I'm finding that it's not unusual for tweets sent via ThingTweet to never show up on Twitter, even though the server response is HTTP/1.1 200 OK.

Anyone have any ideas on what might be going on? Below are server responses from three tweets, the first two of which never posted on Twitter. The first two were sent about a second apart from each other, not sure if that's an issue, they both do come through sometimes.

If messages areĀ similarĀ in a certain amount of time, the Twitter API rejects the post. You get a 200 OK from ThingSpeak, because the transaction is good to that point.

Good to know. Are you aware what the parameters are, i.e. what amount of time, and how "similar" is determined? In this case I wouldn't have considered the two messages to be similar. Even so, I would have expected the first message to be posted regardless.

My application sends two tweets when it starts up. They are canned messages and don't vary from one startup to the next. Sometimes both make it, sometimes neither. If Twitter is dumping them, then it would seem that it's not being consistent about it.
