No, it's not. You can, however, analyze who gets the retweet in the timeline and build the chain that way. Of course, this won't work if you have a huge amount of retweets. Also, it's not 100% accurate.

Let us assume:

    C follows B. B follows A

    A sends a tweet and B retweets it.

    C gets the retweet on his timeline and retweets it again.


I'm connected to UserStream of A and I receive both the retweets. But not sure how to find the retweet chain

How can we know that C retweeted it via B? Is it exposed in any API methods?
