Hey Ryan,

The link that Matt Harris pointed to states:
"...parameters such as max_id and since_id will work as
expected...things like counting Tweets by subtracting status IDs will
not be possible."

So, on the one hand it seems like you'll be able to continue without
modification ... but on the other hand, it seems like you will have to
modify your methods - specifically, the "minus one to stop the same
tweet appearing" part.

I'm guessing that you'll have to slightly modify your code to not use
a 'less one' approach, but hopefully someone else can give you a more
solid answer.
