Never retweet a retweet. If the user selects a retweet and tries to retweet it, your app should find the original tweet's status_id and use *that* status_id in the retweet. Then a user cannot retweet the same thing twice with your app.@Abraham One thing you cant do with the API isPreventing users from retweeting their friends retweet which has already been retweeted by the user .
I believe the Twitter API (and website UI) should be doing this automatically.
