What a tweet like this is?



I received a twitter payload from this tweet https://twitter.com/WilliamsSonoma/status/759830921327611904, but could not find this tweet in the timeline of the account or anywhere else. Also in the payload there is description that is not present in the Website.

How this tweet is generated and how to proper link to it?

The Extra "scopes": { "followers": false }, property suggests that this tweet was a promoted tweet - Promoted tweets can be “hidden” from the timeline, or only appear in certain countries etc. But I don’t know too much about the Ads API.


Yes, this is a nullcasted promoted Tweet via the Ads API.


Thank you guys, that answers my question!
