Hi, John. Are you able to update the API documentation with the latest payloads?
- statuses/retweet and statuses/retweets have an embedded retweet_details element. Is retweet_id the identifier for the status of the retweeting user? Shouldn't statuses/retweet return the retweeted_status element? - statuses/home_timeline has an embedded retweeted_status element (I'm with this one) - statuses/retweeted_by_me, statuses/retweeted_of_me and statuses/ retweeted_to_me are random. Which form will they take? It's fine that there are two distinct retweet elements, but documentation doesn't seem to make this very clear.
