How to I query historical timeline data?


#1

I am simply trying to download all the tweets made by a single public account, (specifically @FIFAWorldCup), for a research project. This amounts to only about 4k tweets in its entirety. However, using statuses/user_timeline limits me to the 200 most recent entries. Am I missing something entirely, or does this functionality not exist?

I apologize if this is a trivial question. I am new to the twitter API.
