My university colleagues and I started developing a Twitter based project for the Machine Learning course.
We are using the REST API to gather retweets, but we are stuck with a limitation from “GET statuses/retweets/:id” request.
According to the documentation, it returns up to 100 retweets of a given tweet. However, we need to have access to all of the retweets of a given tweet.
So, we’d like to be able to navigate through the whole retweets collection (for instance using a cursor parameter - https://dev.twitter.com/docs/misc/cursoring - or something like that).
Is it possible for us to have this kind of access through the REST API? How could we extend the limit?
We will provide further information about the project, if necessary.
