Default Twitter module behaviour

Right now retweeted messages are not displayed, which is understandable, however their presense affects how many messages are shown in total. For instance, if someone has retweeted five things in a row, no messages will appear on their twitter module.

example (at least, at the time of writing): http://twitter.com/MasashiHamauzu http://vgmdb.net/artist/145

ideally I would think it'd just ignore the retweeted messages and show their last 5 regular messages/replies.

That sounds logical, especially if someone jumps on a bandwagon of like retweeting inane things, for example something gets passed around and now 100 of the artists pages all have that same retweet, multiply this by 5 and all of those 100 artists actual tweets are hidden.

I've changed the twitter module to use the default widget provided by Twitter. Not sure how this affects the tweet selections, though.
