include_rts but maintaining count


I’d like to be able to limit my total of requested tweets, but without “include_rts” messing up the total.

For example: I want to load the 2 latest tweets, so I set count to 2, but if I also set “include_rts”, then the possibility exists that I get nothing returned at all. It’s doesn’t make much sense to travers through all the tweets and filter out retweets because the API might otherwise not return enough tweets.

Is there a solid way around this issue?
