I would like to ask you one question regarding the field of retweet_count API, How do you calculate the total retweet_count of a list of tweets under a hashtag, because I know that each tweet has a corresponding retweet_count, but the problem is once you have obtained a list of tweets under a hashtag. I have doubts because the list contains original tweets and RT, and when you check the field of Retweet_count gives the number of each tweet but if one RT (that is included in the list of tweets of hashtag captured) has 10 RT, this RT is included in the list 10 times with the Retweet_count of 10, then the total sum includes 100 instead of 10. Thus, I would like to ask you how this field has been though for using it on that cases that you want to know the total Retweets obtained under a hashtag. How do you calculated the total RT of a list of tweets and RT published on a hashtag, which type of fomula?
Only include the retweet_count of the tweets that aren’t retweets.
