In API v1.1, why does GET lists/members only return the first 20 members (and not all of them?

Hello,

While trying to retrieve members from a list, I found out that GET lists/member only returns the first 20 members. Why is that?
This is not documented and a serious limitation.

Example:
https://api.twitter.com/1.1/lists/members.json?owner_screen_name=palafo&list_id=1010&slug=breakingnews

You can see the snapshot here https://snap.apigee.com/VMmBvN with only 20 entries for screen_name when the list is composed of 43 members.

Best!
Antoine.

This is a known limitation that we’ll resolve in not too long by offering optional cursoring.
