Ooops. I's got a big bug in my twitter API code for the site =/

$ psql
Type "help" for help.

=# select count(id) from mytweets_mytweet;


(1 row)


It turns out that I was relying on a DB constraint that didn't make it through the server migration - so the code was just jamming records in after each Twitter API GET. The insert is wrapped in a try/catch so that it will not bail when there is an integrity error (duplicate keys). With the field not set with a unique constraint - the code just keeps happily sticking records in there... All good now.
