Incomplete user_timeline response


I’m having an issue calling a particular user’s timeline, where the list of statuses returned does not seem complete.

This what I’m calling:

DEBUG “GET /1.1/statuses/user_timeline.json?count=10&exclude_replies=true&screen_name=qualcomm&include_rts=1 HTTP/1.1” 200 2927

And here’s the response:

DEBUG item: {u’contributors’: None, u’truncated’: False, u’text’: u"We’re impressed by how many of you found the hidden #OnePlusQ tweet! The potential winners have been DMd.", u’is_quote_status’: False, u’in_reply_to_status_id’: None, u’id’: 634422510293880832, u’favorite_count’: 24, u’source’: u’Twitter Web Client’, u’retweeted’: False, u’coordinates’: None, u’entities’: {u’symbols’: [], u’user_mentions’: [], u’hashtags’: [{u’indices’: [52, 61], u’text’: u’OnePlusQ’}], u’urls’: [{u’url’: u’’, u’indices’: [106, 128], u’expanded_url’: u’’, u’display_url’: u’’}]}, u’in_reply_to_screen_name’: None, u’id_str’: u’634422510293880832’, u’retweet_count’: 14, u’in_reply_to_user_id’: None, u’favorited’: False, u’user’: {u’follow_request_sent’: False, u’has_extended_profile’: False, u’profile_use_background_image’: False, u’default_profile_image’: False, u’id’: 84623395, u’profile_background_image_url_https’: u’’, u’verified’: True, u’profile_text_color’: u’7D7D7D’, u’profile_image_url_https’: u’’, u’profile_sidebar_fill_color’: u’E8F6FE’, u’entities’: {u’url’: {u’urls’: [{u’url’: u’’, u’indices’: [0, 23], u’expanded_url’: u’’, u’display_url’: u’’}]}, u’description’: {u’urls’: [{u’url’: u’’, u’indices’: [117, 139], u’expanded_url’: u’’, u’display_url’: u’’}]}}, u’followers_count’: 231565, u’profile_sidebar_border_color’: u’FFFFFF’, u’id_str’: u’84623395’, u’profile_background_color’: u’FFFFFF’, u’listed_count’: 2490, u’is_translation_enabled’: False, u’utc_offset’: -25200, u’statuses_count’: 5994, u’description’: u’Our inventions put the smart in smartphone.

But in looking at Qualcomm’s page, I would think I would get back more items than just one.

What am I missing?


Replies are included the in the count. So in this request there’s 9 replies and 1 tweet, and you told it to exclude replies so it will only return the 1 tweet.


Thanks for responding. So if I want to get the 10 most recent tweets without replies, is there a way to do that?
