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 On Sep 29, 1:18 am, tm0054 <tm0...@gmail.com> wrote: > I'm wondering the exact same thing.
