Problem with creating a new Twilio conversation, old chat history is being preserved

Hi there,

I am experiencing the following problem.

When trying to create a new Twilio conversation, the Twilio SDK returns a new SID and I get it saved into our database.

However, then when I finish the session and get the related database entry deleted, and try to start a new session with Twilio conversation, the old chat history is being shown. The conversation object, though, has a different SID from the former one.

Python, Django:

new_conversation = get_twilio_client().conversations.conversations.create(friendly_name=name,attributes=json.dumps({'course_id': str(course_id)}))

The first SID:

SID CH675a9046bbaa46bd9361975dc6230bc0 

The newer SID:

SID CH0450237cb72b4f7cb9bdac702a0b7c45

But both had the same chat history.

What I thought would happen is that when I make create REST API call Twilio gives me a blank conversation with no messages.

Could you please guide me on how to approach this problem?
