Provide a way to retrieve quote tweets
If I have a set of tweet IDs, I do not believe there is a natural way of collecting quote tweets of those tweets using the Twitter API v1 or v2. This limits the ability of me and other researchers to fully study things like political dialogue, polarization, and interactions with political elites.
I believe it may be possible to retrieve quote tweets by searching tweet text for mentions of the tweet IDs, since quote retweets technically contain a URL pointing back to the quoted tweet. However, I do not think that is obvious to many API users, even if that is a viable solution.
Instead I think it would benefit many researchers if there was a query parameter or endpoint that can be used to return all the quote retweets of a given input list of tweet IDs. This may also be a natural way of extending the new conversation_id field in the v2 API since quote tweets can function like replies as additions to the conversation.
