Twitter Status Id’s to change to string representation

I almost missed this post on the new status id generator for twitter:

Timeline
———–
by 22nd October 2010 (Friday): String versions of ID numbers will start appearing in the API responses
4th November 2010 (Thursday) : Snowflake will be turned on but at ~41bit length
26th November 2010 (Friday) : Status IDs will break 53bits in length and cease being usable as Integers in Javascript based languages

I just checked my tables – Oef ! On first look, I already store my status id’s as text… šŸ™‚

Plus of course I’m using Python, not Javascript… but it never hurts to check.
