I can't destroy a RT


#1

when i retweet a tweet im making a new retweet id, why i cant destroy that retweet id if the user who put the original tweet had as private his tweets?


#2

im using statuses/unretweet/[RETWEET ID]


#3

I’ve never actually used status/unretweet but statuses/destroy with the retweet id should work too I believe


#4

statuses/destroy neither destroy the retweetid.


#5

A user account is not able to take action on an account that is private / has blocked another account.


#6

even though a retweet id is different to original tweet id?


#7

Correct. Private (protected), suspended and deleted accounts may not be interacted with via the Twitter API.
