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. cheers, -- Harshad RJ http://hrj.wikidot.com To unsubscribe from this group, send email to twitter-development-talk+unsubscribegooglegroups.com or reply to this email with the words "REMOVE ME" as the subject.
