Disclaimer - Just getting started with twitter
The good - I’m able to use user_timeline to get back tweets from a screen name.
example - api.twitter…/user_timeline.json?screen_name=cnn&include_rts=1
The bad - The reponse doesn’t list the tweet URL, but from the screen name and Id, I can recreate it.
The ugly - For retweets, I don’t see the retweet screen name, so I can’t recreate a url to the tweet.
example - getting tweets for cnn may have a retweet like “CNN iReport @cnnireport”
From what I can tell, the user_timeline doesn’t tell me that the tweet was from “cnnireport”, so I don’t know how to create the twitter.com/XXXXXXXXXXXXXX/status/512610874323116032 url.
Am I missing something basic? Seems like this would be a common scenario. Can somebody give me a dope slap and get me on track?
All advice is appreciated
