Marcel, on behalf of twitter, announced to availability of the statuses/home_timeline method. This is good news! It will allow us to start development of retweet support in our client applications / web-sites, and do backward compatibility testing. Would it be possible, if it has not already been done, for twitter to create a couple of accounts that include some retweets so we can also do forward compatibility testing? It doesn't have to be much, just a half-dozen or so nonsense status updates in each account, some retweeted, some not. When you do this, please be sure to include an example of a status update that is retweeted by more than one other account. I, and others, still have questions, so far unanswered, about what the results will look like in this case, and other similar cases.

Could someone from twitter (Marcel Molina?) please address these issues? I think they are pretty important. I need to know the answers to be able to design support for retweets in my site (http://twxlate.com). I would hope I wouldn't have to resort to experimentation once this feature is deployed at twitter.com to get answers to what I think are pretty fundamental questions.
