I’m investigating a problem where my retweets via the API seem to be ‘disappearing’, and in the course of collecting more info, I’ve run into the problem described below.
I retweeted this tweet on Dec 16, 2017: https://twitter.com/aish_doubi/status/941749162198163456 . This tweet has one media in it, i.e. the artwork. When I request this tweet from the API via statuses/show/id, I get a correct response.
However, when I request the retweet via the API (link: https://twitter.com/antsstyle/status/941843502266118144 ), the media entities array is empty. All the other fields in the API response seem to be fine though.
Is this intended behaviour after a certain period of time? I have tweet_mode_extended enabled, so I’m not sure yet why this would be happening.
