Speaking for TTYtter only, while I'll support receiving retweets, I am
unhappy with the API as it currently exists and retweets received will
be canonized into the older format (and retweets sent will be done
programmatically in the older fashion instead of through the retweet
methods). I suspect there are other app authors who will also do something
