OK, if there is room for change then I'd hope for a parameter like:


This would mean that whenever one of my friends retweets a status, I'd
still get a new entry into the home/user time line. It would stop me
from having to listen to the streaming methods to get all retweets
over time. Even better, the retweet_count would provide a lot more
sense to me then. I'd assume the retweet_count reflects all global
retweets of a status. This means my app would both be able to track
how many of my friends retweeted a status compared to all global
retweets (of people I am not or not yet following).

It's christmas, me can haz duplicate_retweets=true?
