As retweets are such a basic feature for users, it is hard to understand how
this question could not have come up before in designing of the limitations.
I suggest you add a switch to the api call w/o authentication, then the apps
can decide what to do with this, as in once they are ready they can switch
As for the users, the suggestion can only be: do not use the retweet feature
if you are interested in sharing information to your followers,
as your retweets will not be seen elsewhere.
[similar thing btw is going for the lists: tweet results for a list do not
retweets or replies - meaning you have to advise users not to use @reply
at the beginning or the RT feature if they want their tweets seen]
