We'll have entities support working better soon, it took time to identify the cause of sporadic missing entities. As you've noted, it's always a good idea to code defensively both for fields that may not exist yet, and especially in the case of something new like entities, for the event that they'll be missing. As you may have noticed, features of Twitter get turned off now and then for maintenance, performance reasons, or other issues.
