So, yesterday, when I posted this, <retweet_count> was returning null values for everything.
Today, I get the correct values for the first 3 statuses in my retweets_of_me, then they seem to alternate between zero and null for the rest. For the immediate purposes of what I'm working on at the moment, this field working correctly would be awesome. Any news?
