retweet_count and mention_count at user object level


#1

Any chance we can get retweet and/or mention counts at the user level so they’re accessible with GET users/show or GET users/lookup?

I’d like our app to be able to answer questions like “how many RTs/mentions does a user have within for the life of the account (or within a certain timeframe)?” via a simpler API call without traversing/paginating through the respective timelines and parsing a limited number of statuses at a time.

Any alternative solutions would be appreciated as well, thanks!
