What does 're-tweeted status quoted status' field mean?



Hi everyone,

I’m trying to figure out what the ‘retweeted_status_quoted_status’ mean? I know how to use the re-tweeted information as well as the quoted status information, but this is confusing. I’ve tried to simulate something to show as a ‘retweeted_status_quoted_status’ but was not successful.
I would highly appreciate your help
Thank you


Can you post the tweet ID / full json of what you’re seeing as an example? is this a retweeted_status_quoted_status key in a the json you get directly from the REST API? Or is this an object in some Python / js / Java library?

I guess - It’s the quoted tweet, given a tweet which is a retweet of a tweet that contains a quote…? or something. It’s confusing at best of times!

The only example i assume might be it, is this Tweet object (it’s a retweet): https://twitter.com/twitter/status/806174937257914368

@twitter retweeted this tweet: https://twitter.com/Sonikku_a/status/806173502780772352 which quotes this tweet: https://twitter.com/Sonikku_a/status/781469409281921024

So the retweeted_status_quoted_status of https://twitter.com/twitter/status/806174937257914368 is https://twitter.com/Sonikku_a/status/781469409281921024 i assume?

(and for extra confusion, 806173502780772352 is also a reply to 781469409281921024, that’s common too.)
