Same tweet, different id, different json objects: why?


#1

When I open the page
https://twitter .com/i/web/status/955566127580569600
I get the page
https://twitter .com/i/web/status/954998041383227392
So the tweet is the same, I suppose.
The former id is the one that an API home_timeline.json request returns.
However, the json objects that API lookup.json requests return for the two ids are different. The former does not contain entities.url, while the latter does.
Why such strange behaviour?
