Why there’s NO fav_count and retweet count in tweet?

When I use official API, for each tweets, I can get its retweet count and fav count.

Why there’s no these in datasift output tweet?

When you receive Tweets (not retweets) from DataSift, you receive them in real-time. This means that it is impossible that anyone has already retweeted or favorited these Tweets. When you receive retweets of a Tweet, you can look at the twitter.retweet.count field to see how many times the original Tweet has been retweeted.
