It seems logical that the 'count' parameter allows you to specify a
number of tweets to fetch, up to the maximum states (3200). Except,
the docs read:

"Specifies the number of records to retrieve. Must be less than or
equal to 200.

I'm wondering if that's a type and that the value must infact be less
than or equal to 3200 ?

Maybe I'm reading this wrong, but I can't see a simple way to do a
first-time request, number of tweets available being unknown, and to
specify that you'd like to simply fetch as many as the API will allow.
Am I barking up the wrong tree here?
