Give users the option to remove retweets from lists
With the Twitter API change on or about Apr 1 2013, twitter native retweets now can show up in lists. I'd like to turn them off and as per the dev documentation of a lists query for twitter, you can turn on or off native retweets with a simple flag (ow.ly/jGMvt). I'd tie this flag to a radio button for display native retweets yes/no when people add columns displaying a list.
UI has changed since previous update, I guess. I read tweets without retweets in the list, it's useful for me. Now there are retweets in the list. Please users the choices of retweets in the list or not.
Thanks for your feedback with this recent change. We’ll look at the possibility of adding this feature into user options in the future.
Please add this! I create lists with 50+ people I want to follow the tweets of, but the list gets clogged with all the retweets about them.
Have you added this feature yet?
Just to insert an option: "do you want RT: YES/NO" ;)

If this doesn't get fixed, I'm going to have to remove the people from my list who retweet a lot. It just totally messes with how I use Hootsuite.
That, or I'll have to move off the Hootsuite platform.
Seeing all these retweets in my list column makes it very challenging to focus on my lists.

Absolutely, I need an option to turn off all these RT's within my lists. My formerly useful and organized streams have become cluttered with useless information. This is the kind of annoyance that will definitely end up sending me to another social media platform.

I would like the option to choose which list has twitter native retweets, eg. on for my personal list, off for my professional list. The above sounds like a good idea.

Agree, there must be an option to remove them - defeats the purpose of lists otherwise...

I definitely would like a way to remove RTs within lists. Lists are created and monitored for a reason. We don't want unwanted tweets (RTs) filtering them!
This is absolutely essential. One of the best features about hootsuite for me is that I can see tweets from people I'm following but not have to see their retweets.
A way to turn off RTs would be fantastic. I hope your programmers can make that happen sooner rather than later.

Yes, please let me remove all those horrible native RTs from my lists - they are totally cluttered.
Yes, please make this optional. When people on my list retweet other people on my list, they ALL show up. It's the opposite of the efficiency lists are supposed to provide.

I would /really/ like to be able to turn native retweets off, especially as they are turning up for every twitter user I am following, even those I have turned RT's off for when following. Yes please!

I second that request. It's great that it's now available, it's something I've wanted to have for a long time. But I need to toggle on and off at will. Now I can't really use Hootsuite to view lists until you make this change, the signal to noise ratio is too poor.

It's about "on iOS"
