 And has a count parameter that can return up to 200.


Still it is not a reliable method. As i mentioned earlier the data in
'retweets_by_me' may not overlap with 'retweet_by_others' .
I am looking for a response from someone who has implemented the whole
retweet functionalty in their app.(Any desktop apps out there?)

One thing you cant do with the API is
Preventing users from retweeting their friends retweet which has 
already been retweeted by the user .
Never retweet a retweet. If the user selects a retweet and tries to 
retweet it, your app should find the original tweet's status_id and use 
*that* status_id in the retweet. Then a user cannot retweet the same 
thing twice with your app.


I believe the Twitter API (and website UI) should be doing this 
automatically.

The problem is with the original retweet status id only. we always give
original status id for status/retweet method not your friends retweeted
status id.After retweeting this original status how do you prevent the user
from retweeting this original status again.

As far as I can tell, the problem isn't really about preventing the user 
from retweeting the same tweet multiple times, but instead making sure 
that the user sees that he's already retweeted something. This is a 
general problem with the Twitter API. For example, you can run into the 
same problem with favorites or with following/blocking somebody. You 
would mitigate this primarily by polling retweeted_by_me as regularly as 
you would poll favorites, paying attention to the fact that a retweet 
must have a status_id higher than the tweet being retweeted. And, like 
favorites, you are not going to get a perfectly consistent view, because 
there's no notification when the user undoes a retweet, un-favorites 
something, or un-follows somebody. The twitter websites have the same 
problem with inconsistency in their display of the actual server state.


If/when the API adds an indication that another endpoint has modified 
the state so your app can can do an automatic full, slow, 
resource-intensive refresh, it will be easier to show consistent state 
in apps. Until then, just do the best you can and provide a manual full 
refresh command. I think Twitter's users mostly understand that things 
get weird sometimes; if they weren't so forgiving they would never 
have accepted the fail whale or waited through the various DoS attacks.

Brian

Combine retweet timelines? But 'Retweets by Me' returns only 20( as per doc)

Plus what does it matter if a user tries to retweet a status they have

Twitter returns 403 since it has already been retweeted. There is no adverse

Re: [twitter-dev] complete Retweet functionality in thirdparty apps

2010-02-24 Thread Thomas Woolway
Abraham,

Are there any plans to make this any easier for developers to implement
retweets-of-me in the short term? The best solution (for client devs) would
obviously be a stream of the latest retweets, with the full original status
object inline, but as it looks like this isn't going to happen, any chance
of at least adding a retweet_count or last_retweeted_id node to the
retweets_of_me statuses? That way we'd be able to intelligently use
statuses/retweets for only the tweets which have new retweets, rather than
burning through API requests checking multiple tweets every time.

This has become a bit more of an issue as it appears that new style retweets
have stopped appearing in search results, so users can't even workaround
this by using a search for their username.

Thanks,

Tom

What do you mean? You find the 100 most recent retweets of a specific status
[1] or a timeline of all your statuses that have been retweeted. [2]

 What retweet functionality is it not posible to replicate using the API?
 I can not think of any. It might take a number of API calls to collect all
 the data but it is all there.

 Replicating all the retweet functionality is currently not possible

 Rate limit is okay with me (getting 350 with api.twitter.com)

 Hi
 Has anybody implemented complete Retweet functionality (retweets by
 others, by you, your retweets) in their app.
 There are couple of issues with retweets api
 see here

 I would like to know if any one has implemented the complete Retweet
 functionality with some work around.

 Thanks

I've given up on bug reports as a way of getting bugs fixed.  Maybe when

Yes. But does rt_o_m list who retweeted you? Near as I can tell it only
lists the tweets themselves.

Statuses/retweets does. It takes a few API calls but it gets you want is

Thanks, but no thanks. Really, if Twitter wants people to use this API more,
it has to be much less kludgey than it currently is.
