How can I identify native retweets when using Stream API?

retweet

#1

Hello,

I’m working with Stream API in R and want to extract native retweets from manual retweets and quoted retweets, but in JSON tuples the retweet status and retweet count are always false, although in some cases they do have values different from zero.

EDIT: I use this regex: “^RT (@[[:alnum:]_]*)” to do so.

Thanks!
