retweeted_status not documented?


#1

retweeted_status is mentioned here https://dev.twitter.com/docs/platform-objects/tweets, but it’s not documented anywhere. Is retweeted_status object just another status object inside a re-tweeting user’s status object?


#2

You’re correct. Retweets are just a special kind of tweet that contains the original tweet that is being retweeted as a child “retweeted_status” node.

Thank you for confirming.
