Elasticsearch Retweet Value is Always False


ES 1.6.2
Logstash 1.5.4
Kibana 4.1.2

I am accessing Twitter using the logstash twitter plugin and notice that retweeted is always set to false even though the tweet has often been retweeted. Has anyone else come across this?



Yes, I observed it too. Did you able to fix it?

My guess is that LS Twitter input is listening to new tweets through Twitter API.

So every time someone creates a new tweet (matching criteria) it's sent to LS.

There is no chance that a new tweet has already been RT.

That's why this value is always false IMO.
