Hi Rajinder, We would really like to offer access to the historical timeline but our infrastructure doesn't allow access to anymore than 3200 right now. The Tweets are safe and have not been deleted or lost, they are just not available. We also don't have a timeline for access to historical tweets right now. In answer to your second question, when there are no more statuses available we'll return an HTTP 200 with an empty timeline. For example: JSON:  XML: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <statuses type="array"> </statuses> Best, @themattharris Developer Advocate, Twitter http://twitter.com/themattharris On Mon, Nov 29, 2010 at 10:42 AM, Rajinder Yadav <devguy.ca <http://devguy.ca>@gmail.com <http://gmail.com>> wrote: On Mon, Nov 29, 2010 at 12:27 PM, Matt Harris <thematthar...@twitter.com <mailto:thematthar...@twitter.com>> wrote: > Hi Rajinder. > The user_timeline returns upto 200 statuses per page starting with the most > recent.

Questions, am I limited up to only 3200 statuses? is it possible to go beyond this limit and get the entire statues for a user? When there are no more status request (empty set), what http error code can I expect. Likewise if 3200 status is a hard limit what http error will I get when this limit is hit? Finally if I have exceeded my rate limit what is the http code returned? Kind Regards, Rajinder Yadav
