    Hi,

    I was thinking about finding a way to detect tweets that have a lot of RT each day.
    Does anybody know how to do this?

    Hi, yes you can. If you create a twitter-app and then create a script that searches for a keyword.
    In the result you get from twitter, you can then find the 'retweet_count'.
    I do this with an automated script that retweets tweets with more than 10 retweets and got a quite good amount of retweets myself...

    example : http://zjo.be/bhworld/twitter_search.php?q=%22.%22&rt=5

    q= the search string
    rt = the minimum number of retweets

    It's my own domain, so in Dutch :)

    Nice!!

    How do you search on Twiteer for getting the tweets with more than 10?
    Can you find images also?
    Exactly what you showed is what i want to do.

    Hi, you can change the http://zjo.be/bhworld/twitter_search.php?q=%22.%22&rt=5 parameter to any number you want

    I added the script. You will have to create a twitter app first on https://apps.twitter.com/ and you need webhosting

    you can download it here https://copy.com/zQCfDNqLje2eHjzR
