Getting number of retweets for twitter account

Hi everyone.
My application counts number of retweets for some twitter accounts. I mean total sum of retweets from that pages, to be clear. The only way I’ve found so far is using https://dev.twitter.com/rest/reference/get/statuses/user_timeline endpoint. However, using this endpoint is not suitable for me as it requires pulling information about each tweet. Is there some workaroung? May be it is possible to get information about retweets in a single API call somehow?
Thans very much,
Cheers

There is no way to get the total number of retweets for a user as RTs are specific to individual tweets.
