Variable Wildcards

The asterisk (wildcard) character can be using within variable pills to reformat data. For example, imagine you have a list of tweets called Tweets, but instead want a list of the username associated with each tweet. You could create a pill Tweets.*.username, which would build a list by pulling the username key from each tweet item. The wildcard here would be replaced with each possible value within the Tweets list to build the resulting list, ie Tweets.0.username, Tweets.1.username, etc.
