I’m a developer and I started studying Mastodon’s API to develop an open source Python client for exercise
I was practicing with APIs and I’ve found out a strange behaviour, which is described below.
Reading the timeline, APIs returned me a pair (username@instance, userID) for toot’s author, for example (user1@instance1, 12345), but when I use the ID 12345 through APIs (over instance1) to check some information, it appears that ID 12345 refers to user453435 instead of user1.
Is it possible? It’s a weird behaviour!
And if it’s possible, why?
Thanks in advance!
