How can a Twitter tweet have a posted_time earlier than its object_posted_time?

Follow

Do you have any idea why a Twitter tweet might have a posted_time (the timestamp for a retweet) that is earlier than the object_posted_time (the timestamp for the original tweet)?

We have seen this symptom a handful of times. It seems like a bug somewhere in Twitter’s data pipeline. At this time there is no known fix or workaround.
