Ok don't take it here an example for "ipad" may be it was his mistake.
Lets say take an example for any common names like "James" or "Chang" or "Chen" don't you expect there will be far more results than 1000 So, the point he is making here is will twitter keep the same result of 1000 users for every an authenticated user for any particular time duration or unlimitedly ?
