Streaming API to feed the public tweets cannot get retweet msgs


#1

I’m not sure I did anything wrong. I coded a python script to get the tweets it’s successful but I just noticed that all is not retweet msg.
After checking, I saw this message when found the retweet msg ‘NoneType’ object has no attribute ‘get’

Please advise

Are you trying to use the locations parameter? Geo-based matching doesn’t include retweets – users don’t geotag where they are when they retweet another tweet, and the original tweet will be streamed with any attached location data only when it is first created.

Oh I see! after i removed getting coordinates, the retweet has come in! but it still got retweet_count = 0. Do you know why? Because the original tweet already be counted 6 time to retweet.
