Hey everyone,

I wanted to send a reminder that tomorrow (November 4th) we will enable Snowflake. We plan to do this in the early afternoon - 2pm PDT/9pm UTC.

Even though Snowflake is being enabled tomorrow, we won't reach 53bit Tweet IDs for another 24 days. This means you still have time to convert any code which doesn't support large Integers to using the _str representation.

Only Tweet IDs (Tweet, Retweet, Reply) are being Snowflaked. Direct Messages, User IDs, Saved Searches etc are not changing at this time.

Best,
@themattharris
