Hi – so it appears Twitter made some changes to their api I while back that I missed. Your problem sounds similar to this thread https://twittercommunity.com/t/truncated-text-and-media-entities-not-returned/74358/3 . I’ve implemented the change referenced in that post. This will however only work on new copies of the template. All is not lost as from TAGS version 6.1.2 there is a feature to build archives from a column of Twitter ID strings. To rebuild your archive with all the data

      Take a copy of TAGS V6.1 from https://tags.hawksey.info/get-tags/
      Add a sheet called ID and copy/paste your id_str column from your existing Archive sheet
      From the TAGS menu select TAGS > Build archive from Tweet IDs

If you wish to continue collecting tweets the Readme/Setting sheet can be setup as per your old archive and the Archive sheet will continue appending new tweets as before
