No screenName coming from retweet users

Jun 27, 2013 at 1:25 PM
When I get a list of tweets for a user, I want to show the retweets using the original author's image and name. This should also be a clickable to go to their profile. When I do the following:
Dim tweets = From tweet In Context.Status
       Where tweet.ScreenName = screenName And tweet.Type = StatusType.User

for each status in tweets
    user = status.RetweetedStatus.User
    profileImage = user.ProfileImageUrl
    info.Username = user.ScreenName
    info.Name = user.Name
    info.Location = user.Location

The image url and name come through but the screenName does not. This means that I am unable to later load their profile should I need to. Not only is the screen name Nothing but the Id and UserId are also Nothing.

Am I doing something wrong or is this a known issue?

Thank you for that.

I did see that article but for some reason I didn't connect the two issues.
