Tweets missing (pulled but not sent to timeline)

I have been running my own instance of birdsite.live for some time. Besides the problem that the web application does not start with a new, empty database (see https://todo.sr.ht/~cloutier/bird.makeup/4), it basically works fine.

I have only one follower (myself) and about 70 accounts I follow. All tweets are retrieved regularly and their current ids are updated in the database correctly. However, only about half or two thirds of the new tweets arrive in my timeline, the rest are missing.

I have not yet found out in which constellations tweets do not arrive, it seems to be completely random. It seems that accounts with many tweets arrive more reliably.

Is there any cause or way to debug this?

Thank you very much for any help!

Just a quick update:

I installed a current docker build yesterday and it seems that my issue regarding the missing tweets was fixed! My guess is that it had something to to with checkpointing and/or caching. Twitter users with low activity were affected the most. It seems that all tweets are finding their way to my timeline now.

I will continue to keep an eye on it during the next couple of days and will report back if the issue is permanently resolved.

Thank you very much!
