Retweet is an invasive feature with many deep dependency paths. Firm dates would be useful, but they aren't possible in this particular situation. This makes planning for downstream folks difficult.
I'd be ready for the slight possibility of low-volume retweets mid-to- late week, with a high chance the following week, and perhaps a near- unity chance of low-volume retweets the week after that. So, for critical code, any time now. As for full-roll-out, that would be even more of a guessing game. -John Kalucki http://twitter.com/jkalucki Services, Twitter Inc.
