Contributors returning array of Int64 instead of array of objects?


#1

I’m currently deserializing Tweets using v1.1 of the API (I’m going to use the streaming API, but the tweet I pulled is pulled using the REST API).

Here’s the tweet in question:

When I retrieve it using the Rest API, it returns the following for the contributors field:

“contributors”:[14927800]

What I expect however (as documented in the field guide) is:

“contributors”:[
{
“id”:14927800,
“id_str”:“14927800”,
“screen_name”:“twitterapi”
}
]

This is a bug, but is it an error in the field guide, or in the API?
