I am creating an app that tracks all the retweets of a given message.

There are at least 2 methods in API and I am not sure which one to
1. GET statuses/retweet http://dev.twitter.com/doc/get/statuses/retweet
(which is not publicly available)
2. GET statuses/retweets/:id 

Also, it is not clear what does GET statuses/retweets/:id returns. In
the doc it says: "Returns up to 100 of the first retweets of a given
Does it mean 100 *recent* retweets or *earliest*? In other words, will
I be able to track all the retweets if I query the API every day or it
would show me only first 100 retweets from the very first day and
won't show any later ones?

And the last question is about rate limit. If I am tracking retweets
for different users, does the rate limit applies to their accounts or
to my app?

Thanks in advance.
