I’m trying to use user_timeline to get all tweets, earned retweets and earned mentions for a number of users.
Can you answer my queries:
- Is it complete? - i.e. are all 100% of tweets by the user returned?
- Does it require authentication? i.e. by me or by the user.
- What’s the best way to calculate earned retweets (retweets of a user’s content by their followers) and earned mentions (mentions of the user by another user)?
This is related to a previous question to which there has been no answer hence I suspect is not possible! https://twittercommunity.com/t/get-count-of-tweets-mentions-and-retweets-via-api/11556
