I have a Twitter account, and the other night, I went to retweet (repost) a link someone posted. The person I got it from got it from another user, who I think got it from a few other people - and all user names were included. When I hit "Retweet," the message came up like this (identifying info removed):
RT @PersonImFollowing RT @PersonMyPersonIsFollowing Really cool but brief message with link here (via @AnotherUser @StillAnotherUser).
Normally, when I retweet, I mention the user I got it from. However, because of the extra people involved here, I'm already over my character limit by 4, so I had to remove stuff so I could post it. Since the message itself was so short, there wasn't really anything I could take out, but since it went through so many users, I thought I could take out some of them. My question - which user should I mention - the person I'm actually following or the person who originally posted the message?
