Offer the option to hide retweets in a stream
One of my columns is a twitter list. It's a very focused list, but lately it's getting crowded by retweets. I would like to keep this stream focused to just the people in the list. I do not want to see the retweets in this stream.
Please offer an option where we can hide retweets in a stream.
Some users, while their own tweets are fine, constantly RT their mentions. (especially celebs) also endlessly whatever is trending. I'd like to be able to block their RTs.
This is an interesting idea! We’ll look at how we can add this feature to streams in the future. Thanks for your feedback!

I know you can remove retweets from a #keyword based stream. But my streams based on lists are still way too full of retweets - I can't figure out a way to remove them.
Tweetdeck has this feature. Hootsuite does not.

Seriously Hootsuite, ADD THIS OPTION!! I miss Tweetdeck for this reason.
It has been almost a year since this request has been made. Has anyone found a way to achieve this yet?

Please do something to hide retweets. Furthermore, people I follow tend to show tweets from people I cannot bear.
I am all for this. I think I requested it yesterday but hadn't seen this. It's probably been deleed being a duplicate. I DID do a search, honest!. :D

I'm getting way too many retweets in my streams. I may move off hootsuite if this doesn't get resolved.
I agree my feed is filled with retweets

+1 - I voted for this idea but I would have requested it if it hadn't been suggested already.

This would be so helpful. When you're following a hashtag people often retweet so you get multiple copies of the same message and it's just too noisy.

I agree, all Twitter clients should let us toggle visibility of retweets off and on.
