Mention is under REST API Timeline API

You can implement Mention as long as you have the Objective-C Twitter
Library that support Mention. If not you would have to write your own
Objective-C implementation.

the authenticating user.The timeline returned is the equivalent of the
one seen when you view your mentions on method is can
only return up to 800 statuses. If include_rts is set only 800
statuses, including retweets if they exist, can be returned.This
method will not include retweets in the XML and JSON responses unless
the include_rts parameter is set.The RSS and Atom responses will
always include retweets as statuses prefixed with RT.
