Twitter usage notes

For those of you who have enabled Twitter on the Stoker, please note that:

Twitter will ignore attempts to perform a duplicate update. With each update attempt, the application compares the update text with the authenticating user’s last successful update, and ignores any attempts that would result in duplication. Therefore, a user cannot submit the same status twice in a row. The status element in the response will return the id from the previously successful update if a duplicate has been silently ignored.

This is quoted from here. This means that if the temps are the same between two intervals, then the new update will be ignored because the update will be the same as the previous
