See subj. I thought it can be only greater, since between home_timeline and retweeters/ids calls some time has elapsed, but…
How come I get number of items in /statuses/retweeters/ids, which is less, than retweet_count value in /home_timeline tweet record?
Not all of the users who retweeted a tweet are necessarily viewable to the requesting user, though they may be included in the count. A maximum of 100 possible results will be returned, but that number doesn’t include any in the sequence that would be filtered out for visibility reasons.
I’m requesting retweeters without user context (app-only auth), does it influence the content of the reply? And all friends and followers of the author of the tweet are viewable to him, right?
