Hey Sachin -

We just released an API call that tells some of the data you're
looking for:

These are all actionable metrics, no raw data for # of mentions or
RTs.  It spans a user's entire Twitter timeline.
To gather the stats, we've scraping all of Twitter since 2006.

Let me know if that helps you at all.
