This is a smaller story broken out from #562.
This issue is just to make POST /statuses/retweet/:id work like the twitter API. This route doesn't currently exist at all, but there is a nice update json decorator for you to use.
Ignore the issue of client authentication for the moment; just make this work as a normally authenticated user in the browser for now (see #564 about authentication)
Description: Retweets a tweet. Returns the original tweet with retweet details embedded.
Definitely interpret anything in the twitter docs so that it makes sense for rstat.us, and definitely ask if you have any questions!

Do we have retweets?
We do, but they're "non-native" in twitter terms (that is, they add extra characters, until issue #366 is implemented) and they're called RS which stands for.... restate? reshare? restatus? something that's not retweet... ahhh, check out #11 for the discussion on that ;)
