Good morning all! Before the OAuth change, I wrote a twitter archiver that would grab my tweets and dump them into a database. Back then I only had about 1K tweets so I was able to grab all my tweets without hitting the limit. And of course since then, I don't post more than 20 tweets a day.
But today, I was curious to see if I could use the new OAuth to retrieve my timeline, starting from my first tweet. I can't seem to get it. Here are my parameters: http://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.json?screen_name=linuslive&since_id=1&trim_user=1&count=200 When I do this, it only gives me the top 200 tweets. It doesn't start from the beginning and give me my 200 oldest tweets, as I would expect. I've tried various since_id's, even retrieving my first tweet: http://twitter.com/linuslive/statuses/872090728 Which equals http://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.json?screen_name=linuslive&since_id=872090728&trim_user=1&count=200 And I get the same response. According to twitter, I have 3682 tweets, just over the 3200 limit according to http://dev.twitter.com/doc/get/statuses/user_timeline. The confusing thing is that the documentation does not make it clear that it's 3200 of the most recent tweets, or just 3200 per session. Could I get a clarification on this?
