Yes, this information is exposed through the Chatter REST API (which is generally available) and Connect in Apex (which is in dev-org preview in Spring 13). Doc is here: http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/chatterapi/index.htm


The feed item payload or ConnectApi.FeedItem object includes "originalFeedItem" and "originalFeedItemActor" properties, which provide information about the original feed item that was shared.

Is there any support for getting "Originally Posted By" information from SOAP API?
