`timestamp_ms` key missing from Streaming API results



The data I get from the streaming API is missing the timestamp_ms and timestamp_ms is no longer part of the documentation at https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/tweets/data-dictionary/overview/intro-to-tweet-json.

I haven’t been able to locate the announcement that this field was removed. Can anyone confirm if this field is supposed to be missing. When was it removed? I have some code that relies on that field.


It should not have vanished either on standard or enterprise. Can you provide any additional context, information on libraries you are using, or code snippets? We are currently unable to reproduce.


Thanks for your response. I now understand that timestamp_ms is only a property of tweet objects from the streaming API. I believe the code that gathers the streaming data I was examining is inadvertently dropping the fields and with your response, I have leverage to compel an examination of that code.

When I query directly, timestamp_ms is a key in results returned from
twurl -H stream.twitter.com -A 'Accept-encoding: none' -X POST '/1.1/statuses/sample.json'

timestamp_ms is not a key in results from twurl 1.1/statuses/sample.json or the Tweepy examples I tested, but these are not streaming API, so this is expected.

Two requests:
If the documentation at https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/tweets/sample-realtime/api-reference/get-statuses-sample had the Example Response filled out, it would be helpful.

If timestamp_ms was part of the the documentation at https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/tweets/data-dictionary/overview/intro-to-tweet-json, I could have answered my own question.


timestamp_ms is missing from the retweeted_status object.
