You are right; the retweets do appear in the stream. The source inside the
"retweeted_status" object is the original application, but the source in the
outermost object is the application used for retweeting. It is this
outermost source that I have been using in the stats. Which means the
rankings are as I intended and UberTwitter is indeed at #2.

I found that the volume of retweets is very tiny in the sample feed. I have
already deployed a change to my stat collector to record the retweet
information. Will make changes to the UI in a few days to reflect this data.

I will soon writeup all these details and make it available in the stats
page somewhere.

Thanks for bringing this to my notice.
