Include retweeter's information in the column for user's own tweets retweeted
As it's already present in other types of retweet columns (it seems absurd on the column for other tweets retweeted by the user, though).
Up until a few days ago could see who had retweeted me in my @noxhanti search stream including New Style retweets in a similar way to @mentions. More recently New Style Retweets appeared as my tweets w/ @ "retweeted by" tag. Now those have also gone I have to go to twitter to see who has retweeted me. I like to acknowledge/rt people who rt me and in any case find it helps to know who rts so I can get some sense of what works for which people in my network. Ideally I'd prefer not to have an extra "My tweets retweeted" column but to have one column where all interactions w/ me are displayed. Thanks
The number of retweets by others can you see but not by who it is retweeted. Are you going to do this yet?
At present I seem to have to go to another site or app to identify who has re-tweeted my tweets, It would be helpful to be able to identify them from within Hootsuite.
When a message is retweeted, as well as seeing a count, it would be useful if you could click and see who it has been retweeted by
It would be great to see who has actually Retweeted me in the My Tweets, Retweeted stream. I am paying $9.99 per month for Hootsuite Pro and would expect this and other functionalities to come as standard. It is frustrating. I would consider cancelling my subscription if not fixed.
As not all retweets include my mention, Is there any option to check my posts retweeted at the information column ? Thanks
My Tweets, Retweeted should give me the ability to see the handles or names of anybody who retweeted my original tweet and then anybody who retweeted those RTs. The count number is okay but a significant shortcoming inn HootSuite compared to Seesmic and TweetDeck.
When a tweet in your dashboard has been retweeted it might say something lik e"2 retweets". Being able to hoover or click to see just who retweeted the message would be great additional information. Don't want to retweet something when one of you pro - team mates might have.
Add a stream of retweets showing who retweeted and a stream of recent followers. Why is this so hard for Hootsuite to do? Tweetdeck does it in one stream called interactions. Hotsuite please listen to your users.
Really need to see who's retweeting our tweets - please advise on progress on this matter.
make it easy for me to figure out who has retweeted our tweets. I use hootsuite to see that it has been retweeted but I cant see who! Can we scroll over the bit that says "3 retweets" and it pop up for us to see who they are?
It is important to be able to see who retwitted you and to program a way to directly contact it to thank foir the retwitting
I would just like to be able to see who retweets my stuff. It says on there how many times but I actually have to go to Twitter to find out who did it. Otherwise I'm loving this site.
Time saver for seeing who RTs are from, their impact on impressions, influence, Business or Comsumer, and if I want to follow them back.
Click on the number of RT of a message an get a list of users has retweeted
When someone RTs your tweet without using the old school format, make sure their name shows up in RT stats so you can thank them!
I'd like to be able to see who retweeted my tweets. Right now all I get is a number, which is helpful, but I'd like to be able to expand this to see who did the retweeting.
Twitter has released new functionality to allow this and I think it would be a valuable addition to HootSuite
Improve the RT identifier as to who retweet instead of just the number. It's a useful way to say thanks to those who RT.
When somebody RT one of my Tweets, Hootsuite shows that it has been retweeted, but dont shows the people that retweeted me
I think it would be great if you would develop a feature that allows users to see who retweets their tweets
Please add a feature that allows us to see who's retweeted our tweets. I feel rude not to thank them.
I suggest you ... put a visualizer in "My tweets, retweeted" to check who retweeted us. So, isn't necessary do a login in "twitter.com" only to see this. Thanks.
I can see what is being retweeted but I would like it to show me who has been retweeting my post.
I would like to see in the stream _My Tweets, retweetet' without any further click, how many people retweetet my tweet and who did that (avatar below the tweet as in twitter itself)
It's common courtesy to thank people for retweets, but unless you can see that your tweet has a) been retweeted and b) by who, you cannot do that. Having an extra stream for "My Tweets, retweeted" is pointless when they could be simply included in the Mentions stream - 'cause that's what it really is afterall!
This stream allows me to see which tweets of my have been retweeted and it allows me to reply to these, although, when you click reply it replies to myself and not the person who did the retweet. I would like to see and reply to the person who did the retweet.
I'd like to be able to track specific users that retweet my tweets. This will better define our reach and help me acknowledge those users that spread my messages and content. Thanks.
Love the ability to see that your post has been retweeted by others., however it would be excellent to be able to see WHO has retweeted you. Especially for businesses, I want to see who retweets my posts and the only way to do that is to log in through the twitter.com website and taking a look there. This is imperative for businesses, so you can work more for interaction with the clients.
We’re still reviewing the feasibility of doing this using Twitter’s API.
Thanks for your feedback!
Every other twitter app that I use has the ability to see Who retweeted our tweets AND then the ability to immediately reply to them to thank them for the retweet. This is a very common twitter practice that Hootsuite does NOT make available or easy to do.
@SW. Couldn't agree more. I can't see who's retweeted us and the autocomplete @ is not working. How am I supposed to remember the twitter name for everyone we follow?!?
I just started a free trial of HootSuite and this has already been an issue for me and my team. It's making me look at other options. Before I can consider continuing with a paid service, I have to be able to justify the cos to my manager--she's going to want to know about efficiencies, ease of use, and if I have to go elsewhere to see such basic information, it's not going to work for us. A big part of building our follower base is to thank the existing followers who retweet us--some of them are employees and they appreciate the recognition. A search of "@____" isn't working, either.
@Jerry: Any news yet? It seems that feature is still not there!

until recently could see New Style retweets in my @noxhanti search stream w/ the names of the accounts retweeting. The new "My tweets retweeted" column is not much use to me as I don't know who is retweeting...have to go to twitter to find out. Like to acknowledge/rt ppl who rt me + it's good to know what works for which people in my network
I don't know what has happend but since a few days it doesn't work.

In September 2012 you said it was under review and its now January 2013- What's happening?

It's been over a year since HootSuite posted they'd consider the suggestion. Unless I'm missing it, we still can't see who's retweeted tweets. Come on guys..get on it!
Ben Maydat commented
I can't even think this is not currently possible ! For community management it is very important. I don't like to switch to Tweet Deck to see who retweeted. Please change this ! Thanks a lot
Leeg Moser commented
The deficiency of assistance of this function is enough for me to seriously reevaluate using the Hootsuite platform!
You can definitely do this...SproutSocial shows you this information, which is why I still even use them. But it would be SO great to have this in Hootsuite and all of my reporting in one place.

For the search, it needs to be exactly "RT @HootSuite" ie) your own username. If you delete the space, or do not add the RT it won't pull all of the results. Let me know if you are having any difficulties!
Please note that this is simply a suggestion that may assist you in getting the data that you are looking for. The feedback item is still under review.
Thank-you for the suggestion. It's okay but not great as you can't directly copy and paste the tweeter's address into the compose field, but it'll do for now. I know you guys will figure out a better way. Hoot-hoot!
Totally Ridiculous, unbelievable that hootsuite doesn't have this feature. Not having it is a massive shortfall from hootsuite, a huge error that needs to be fixed. All it needs is the profile thumbnail of the re-tweeter next to the re-tweet icon that you can scroll over to show the name. The solution posted above is useless and does not work.
How do I get the @username if I doo not know the @username or do you mean my own user name?
Sarah, I don't believe that is accurate. When I do a search for @PaulSteinbrueck, http://twitter.com/i/#!/search/realtime/%40PaulSteinbrueck does not have the 34 retweets shown here:

You can't review _all_ retweets this way, only old style ones. The new Twitter process doesn't allow this kind of tracking, hence the need for this functionality.
I really love using hootsuite, but the lack of this feature really kills it for me. I'm about to give up on hootsuite if this feature isn't added soon, as a lot of people managing a community I need this feature. I switched from tweetdeck to hootsuit (mainly for the facebook support), but I'm ready to switch back and update my facebook page status manually...
I am not even a heavy Twitter user yet finally gave up on Hootsuite for lack of this very feature. It's critical to know for relationship-management purposes who has retweeted one's tweets. Hullo? Using Tweetdeck as of tonight. I miss Hootsuite's tabs. Never had reason to use the team features. I don't miss switching to twitter.com to see who has retweeted each time. I hope Hoosuite adds this feature so I can switch back, meanwhile I'll just deal with having 20 columns across the window.
People have been asking you for this feature since April 2011! Please do something about it Hootsuite. If Tweetdeck can do it, HS should be able to do it as well. It's not a limitation of the Twitter API.
Please let us see who RT's our tweets, not just the fact that they've been re-tweeted! This 'limitation' another factor that is preventing my organisation from going pro with you guys.
