Potential Issue with Statuses/Retweeters


I’m attempting to get the retweeters of a status, https://dev.twitter.com/rest/reference/get/statuses/retweeters/ids, and I believe there’s a problem unless I’m doing something wrong.

I’m using this tweet for my test case: https://twitter.com/CharlieDayQuote/status/794994090022563840. As you can see, there are plenty of retweets to warrant pagination but my response is only getting 93 retweeters and:

["next_cursor"] => int(0)
["next_cursor_str"] => string(1) "0"
["previous_cursor"] => int(0)
["previous_cursor_str"] => string(1) "0"

I’ve tried it both with suppressing the cursor variable and using cursor: -1.

PS, the docs indicate that you can specify a count field but that’s not covered in the expected parameters section.

GET https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/retweeters/ids.json?id=327473909412814850&count=100&stringify_ids=true

How to know who favorite or rt a tweet?

@DanielCHood you can only get a maximum of 100 retweeters at all. It’s weird that the docs don’t emphasize this. I made a post about this a while back because it’s confusing, but nothing ever happened:


Well that makes sense but the documentation should definitely be changed. Wish I could get more data but no big deal. Thank you.
