When a VOD gets deleted, there's no known way to retrieve the time of when the clipped event occurred live. Knowing the time of the event helps tremendously when creating highlights for an individual as it allows chronological ordering with no errors, whereas if one uses the _created_at_ key from the **Get Clip** api endpoint, you're subject to the time when the clip was created.
This topic was discussed briefly on the twitch developers forum, https://discuss.dev.twitch.tv/t/clip-event-timestamp/19441/3 .
