I am showing a bunch of tweets in a list after how they are ranked by our analysis tool. It’s important for us to distinguish between retweets and normal tweets. The widget script is run however, the retweets render exactly like the tweet they retweeted. Example:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-conversation="none">
    <p>

renders exactly like

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-conversation="none">
    <p>
       @MidnightYell512
       BitBucket. Been using it a couple of months, it&#39;s excellent. SourceTree, the desktop UI, very well done.

How do I make it clear that retweets are retweets?


Embedded retweets rendering issue
#2

Unfortunately we don’t support retweets in Embedded tweets today. As a single piece of content, we prefer to show the original tweet as that’s the main content.

In a timeline however we do show ‘Retweeted by …’. Since you say you have multiple tweets, can you use a timeline? Could be a List Timeline or you can use Collections to create a random timeline.

Well… I have lists of tweets ordered by the score our system gives them, so timeline only seems viable if I can create a timeline of one tweet, and render it in place of each tweet, but I havn’t had time to look into the specifics yet.

Collections are not viable, as I would have to create a collection for each page reload, resulting in, well, a lot of collections, and little way to reuse them.
