At times, there are tweets that I would deem appropriate to retweet to specific lists or only to certain followers. I've had much experience using Twitter and third party programs like Tweetdeck but it seems like a broad brush is painted when it comes to retweets, it's either all or nothing. Is there something I haven't looked into and "specific retweeting" exists?

I don't think Twitter is really designed for that. You can do that with Google+ or Facebook though. Twitter is best for sharing things publicly (unless they added functionality since I last used it, which was admittedly a long time ago). – Muhd Mar 30 '12 at 6:30
Also, that doesn't sound like functionality that could be implemented by a third party program... the twitter API and data model would have to be changed for that to work. – Muhd Mar 30 '12 at 6:32
