A string displayed in place of the URL to an image included in a Retweet.

When an author uploads an image to attach to their Tweet, Twitter automatically assigns it a unqiue display URL that is included in the Tweet, instead of the actual URL to an image. The display URL is also included in Retweets. You can use this target to filter for content if you know the display URL of an image attached to a Retweet.


  1. Filter for Retweets that mention @datasift and include an image with a particular display URL:

twitter.mentions == "DataSift" AND == ""
