Search API doesn't return media for some tweets

Hi!

I’m making such call on API: “https://api.twitter.com/1.1/search/tweets.json?q=%23bakingselfie%20AND%20pic.twitter.com&include_entities=true”.

It returns this tweet https://twitter.com/yumcoconut/status/790320401553457152 (on which you can see a native twitter picture) but there is no media on API response for this tweet.
Is it a bug or I’m missing something?

Update:
Just tried “https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/show/790320401553457152.json?include_entities=true”, no media as well.

Update 2:
Turns out it works fine with &tweet_mode=extended. So I think API documentation should be updated to reflect these changes or it should be fixed to return media regardless of this parameter and length of tweets.

Thanks. This is in progress and will be reflected once the complete set of upcoming changes to Tweets are implemented in the future.
