Hello, As far as I can tell in the documentation and the API announcement, the "retweet_count" field is supposed to be an integer. However for popular tweets the value is "100+" which is a string. I'm working around this now by parsing an integer out of the field so "100+" becomes 100.
So, I think the documentation should be updated to mark the "retweet_count" field as a string, or the API should be updated to only return an integer. I'd prefer the latter, understanding that it would only be an approximation. -- Twitter developer documentation and resources: http://dev.twitter.com/doc API updates via Twitter: http://twitter.com/twitterapi Issues/Enhancements Tracker: http://code.google.com/p/twitter-api/issues/list Change your membership to this group: http://groups.google.com/group/twitter-development-talk
