API 1.1 tweet/retweet counts


Is there a way in version 1.1 to get basic statistics about a URL? how many times it was included/tweeted/retweeted?

More or less what topsy API does example here http://otter.topsy.com/stats.js?url=http://www.google.com or twitter’s internal http://urls.api.twitter.com/1/urls/count.json

I know it is probably doable through the streaming api but can it be done with the REST 1.1 ?


+1 on this. Rest V1 will stop working soon and I have got the feeling that there are many websites making use of the private http://urls.api.twitter.com/1/urls/count.json endpoint which will stop working.


Any word or documentation on this?
