Actual example of timeline "paging". max_id, since_id, etc


I m wanting to load tweets into a non-bootstrap carousel, and break up a series of tweets into "pages"
I’ve seen that “pagination” has been deprecated, and that there are max_ID, since_ID, and count that can be used.
I’m using the user_timeline callback.

Is there actually a single code example somewhere?
the docs provided are pretty useless unless you work for twitter.

here’s the code so far:

<div id="twit-div"><ul id="twitter_update_list"></ul></div>
  <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
  <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>


this works great for getting a single block of 9 tweets.
What I need to do is break it into 3 sections for use in an carousel.


first 3 tweets (1-3)

next 3 tweets (4-6)

last 3 tweets (7-9)

Any suggestions on how to do this, or any adequate documentation?
