Missing extended_entities on extended tweets (longer than 140)

extended-tweet

#1

I am not receiving the field extended_entities through sitestreams on the new extended tweets that are longer than 140 characters.

The field extended_tweet.entities seems to contain an “extendend entities” object, but the docs say both extended_tweet.entities and extend_tweet.extended_entities should be present.

You can just use entities instead of extended_entities. I found that the normal entities dictionary has informations for GIFs and videos, which is a different behavior from traditional tweets.


#3

I’m not sure if this is applicable to the Streaming API, but for the REST API, tweets longer than 140 characters can be retrieved with extended_entities by appending tweet_mode=extended to the request. Perhaps the streaming API has an equivalent option.
