Goal

Sentiment analysis can get different results on tweet and retweet. In situations where we have a limited amount of text, it gets even harder to determine sentiment.
In situations when retweets or republishing of messages, the extra text (RT, url), are also included in the text body, and broken up for sentiment analysis. Sentiment analysis will break apart the message and analyze it piece-by-piece. In the retweet, it may see the new word "resists", or the increased number of times that "removes", "arrested", etc... as enough to push the message to negative.
