Getting tagged Tweets... but not ReTweets

#1

I currently have a simple API search:

https://api.twitter.com/1.1/search/tweets.json?q=$tag+filter%3Avideos&result_type=recent&count=100

But it’s picking up lots of ReTweets. Is there anyway I can filter these out and only get the originals?

Try adding “-filter:retweets” to your search query - should work.
