I am having the exact same problem. First of all home_timeline method
does not include retweets made by you and on top of that it does not
include whether a particular tweet has been retweeted or not. It is
confusion for the end user.

User will try to retweet and he will get a error message. But it will
better if user knows whether he can retweet a particular tweet or not
