Hello twitter community,
I have run up against what I think is a bug in the display_text_range value of an extended tweet when only leading @ mentions and a trailing URL is in the full_text.
The problematic tweet found is BarisanRajawali/status/777954621826342912:
... "full_text": "@SobatRizalRamli @rajomalano @republikaonline @antaranews @BeritasatuTV @PKSejahtera @Gerindra @PDemokrat @MRomahurmuziy @VIVAcoid https://t.co/kAN1Tayn9e "display_text_range": [ 131, 130 ], ...
Here the display_text_range should identify zero-length tweet text, but instead provides an invalid start and end range. I would expect the space (" ") character at index 130 to be the inclusive start and 130 to be the exclusive end of the range which would produce an empty string.
Can you confirm this is a bug? Am I misinterpreting the display_text_range in this example?
The full tweet is available here.
