I like Abraham's idea:
>>Twitter could add: "next_cursor_string":"1314614526448841129"
Or a general return_as_string parameter which would return all values
as strings. This would solve the problem for future values that might
exceed the max int. There are going to be a lot of devs using PHP
that don't have the option to switch to 64 bit or make any php.ini
