Can i build a tree based on all users that retweet a specified tweet?


#1

I need to construct a ‘retweet’ tree based on all user that retweet a specified tweet.
for example :

  1. C tweet about X
  2. A retweet a tweet from C about X
  3. B retweet a tweet about X via A
  4. L and R retweet a tweet about X via B
  5. V and Z retweet a tweet about X via L

tree :
C
|
A
|
B
/
L R
/
V Z

The API doesn’t give you information about the “via” context you’re looking for. It’s just the original tweet being retweeted, regardless of how the user encountered the tweet.
