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:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<statuses type="array">

    Hi Matt,

    thanks, that is a better solution than what I have been using.
    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
