Most of the APIs will return at most 20 results, not exactly 20
results. Inappropriate tweets, such as deletions, etc., are filtered
out at read-time. I think some code paths attempt to fix up the cached
vector, where possible, but not all can and not all do. You can see
this happen when a subsequent identical call returns more values.
I'm sure there are all sorts of edge cases that I'm not aware of, and
things constantly change, but, In the end, if you need to display
exactly 20 tweets, you might just need to loop until you receive 20
