Count of mentions for different periods


#1

hello,

i am new to Twitter and i would like to ask something.

i am developing website which needs to display twitter’s mentions for different periods (day/week/month/year). can i use for this twitter api? i can count mentions from http://api.twitter.com/1/users/show.json response, but it seems not to be stricted in time. Any feedback will be helpful for me.

Thank you,
Anton

The number of times a user has been mentioned isn’t available in users/show actually.

If a user auths your application, you have access to their mentions timeline. It only goes back about 800 mentions.
