Is deleting a tweet technically a DELETE request?

From the assignment:

[...] when you delete a tweet, there goes a DELETE request.

I think deleting a tweet sets an is_visible flag to False, so your tweet still exists but it's just not visible anymore. If that's the case, then "deleting" a tweet is more like a PUT request.

import requests

kittens = requests.get('')
text = kittens

print kittens.text[559:1000]
