Why is there less metadata in older historical Twitter?

Follow

Twitter has changed...a lot. Although Sifter can reach back to the earliest Jack Dorsey Tweets, at least the undeleted ones, it cannot change the fact that Twitter created a very different stream of metadata over time. As the platform evolved, so too did the metadata attached to a Tweet.
