If I have access to an account, I can use either twitter.com/#!/retweeted_of_mine or give retweetrank.com/retweeted.in/etc (read-only) access to see who has new style RT'ed the account.

Is it possible to see this info at all if I don't have access to the account?

You'll want to use a third party tool like Favstar.fm

Unless I am missing something, I can confirm that FavStar does NOT allow for it. Heck, it couldnt even find an user I know exists. – Gaia Feb 1 '12 at 14:13
@Gaia hmm? Pretty sure you can – Sathya Feb 1 '12 at 14:25
User has to sign in to FavStar, and I want to track "an account I don't have access to": "Stats can't be shown as @twitteruser has never signed in to Favstar." – Gaia Feb 6 '12 at 14:54
