Hi there,

This is relatively common with retweets. As a result of pre-pending the "RT @GraceValour: " onto the tweet body, the end of the tweet gets necessarily truncated to fit within 140-characters. However, as documented at, if you navigate to the [retweeted_status] attribute you will find the entire (not truncated) body of the original tweet.

Hope this helps.
