Using the GET statuses/mentions request I can return all the @mentions
and RT's for the authenticating user. The API documentation says that
no authentication is required, but since there is no user ID parameter
I can see that it does in fact require authentication (reading the
forums have confirmed this I think).

Does anyone know of a way to get the # of mentions and RTs for a user
ID within a timeframe (i.e. last 30 days)?

Using the Search API I can get some results in json... but it seems to
be only returning the last 8 or so mentions.

Does anyone know how applications like Klout are getting these stats?
( shows 267 mentions and 63 retweets).
I'm sure they are still only accurate within a certain timeframe but
I'm curious as to how they're getting these stats at all without
authentication from the user.

Any help would be much appreciated.
