Bug Description


A little improvement wished for a fantastic application !

When someone I follow on Twitter or Identica RT a tweet from the official way (ie not makes manually a citation with "RT @...") by using "Retweet" option, I expect to see the message in my Timeline as it appears on Twitter or Identica website.

It means : avatar and pseudo of original author of message retweeted, and below a row which says "Shared" or "RT by @..." and name of user who made the RT.

Because RT are a way to make your followers discover new interesting users and be able to follow them.

Mustard has an option to directly follow an user from a menu and Timeline coming after click on his avatar or name, so for that we need the original avatar, not those of the person who did the RT.

And the main problem is : when you RT a message which is already 140 characters, the way Mustard presents => it adds on the beginning of the message "RT @" and name of author, which reduces number of characters available.

So often the end of message is truncated : we miss the end of sentance, or sometimes URL links are no more correct and can not be visited from the RT.

I hope it will be possible to make it like official Twitter behavior :)
