A tweet containing gif file doesn't contain the attached gif file even in it's mp4 form as an attached entity


#1

trying to recieve a tweet and parse it’s file entities when the tweet should contain gif files doesn’t have the tweet in it’s file entities as it’s should
checking the tweeter source of i see that the gif was converted into mp4 which also doesn’t exist in the tweet.
my question is if i try to access user tweets, i usually can access all images added on it. why can’t i access the url for the gif/mp4 than?

At the moment the animated GIFs are not being returned in the API responses, but this is something that is actively being worked on and you should expect this to change in the next month or so.
