This is the scenario (using Python + Tweepy for api calls):
- Post tweet from account 1.
- Retweet that tweet from account 2, note id of the reweet
- Back to account 1 - update status with a user mention of the retweeter, using the new extended tweet option.
’@retweeter_handler some text’
’.@retweeter_handler some text’
When the status is posted, the ‘.’ is prepended to the user mention.
Is this the default/ desired behavior when replying to retweeters? If so, is there any way to ‘force’ the reply to use a simple user mention in this case while sill using the new format?
Thanks, if not for solution, at least for a clarification.
