inReplyToStatusID not working

May 28, 2014 at 3:52 PM
I am trying to use the UpdateStatus with the inReplyToStatusID attribute.
I am using
Dim tweet As Status = twitterCtx.UpdateStatus(statreply & " " & DateTime.Now.ToString(), nothing, nothing, false, "xxxxxxxxxxxxx")

It just simply posts the message. It is not "in reply" to the original "xxxxxxx"

LinqtoTwitter version
any thoughts? Am I missing something simple?

OK, I really don't want to do a UpdateStatus? I just want to : where xxxxxxx = the status id.
any ideas?

According to Twitter's docs, you need to include the username in the text of the tweet, in addition to providing the InReplyToStatusID:

Hi Joe,
That was the issue. I wasn't formatting the username correctly in my reply.
