mentions_timeline response problem API v1.1



today I have tried to implement mentions timeline API for ver 1.1 and after my authorized request:

I got response code 400; empty response body and headers was look like this: { date: ‘Thu, 06 Sep 2012 14:47:00 UTC’, server: ‘tfe’ }

Where is problem here? At my side?

I have also tried with this URL (there is bug on this page First it says to send request on and after it says


You should indeed be using statuses/mentions_timeline.json – I’ve corrected the documentation error in the example portion of that doc.

Was there a status line with that HTTP response?


Still the same…

Response code: 400
Request url:

I have tried without URI parameters, to change count param… I dont know what to do. I really need this API endpoint!


Are you sending authorization with the request?


Same problem here (and yes, every request is authorized). I am using the 1.1 endpoint (statuses/mentions_timeline), supply with count=200 and similar details. Call returns zero results. I run it again, zero results. I run it again, all results there.

I ran this over a batch of users, and about every 7th or 8th user got successful results back on the first attempt.

@episod Similar to other issues, is the count size too large and the request times out on your side maybe?


Same problem, I tried ‘statuses/mentions_timeline’ call with count=200 and it returns empty results. I am currently working with count=150 until the guys from Twitter fix this ‘count=200’ issue.


I’m looking into a few issues with mentions timeline today. I’ll see if I can get a better understanding of this.


When this happens, is it with your account specifically? If not, which account?


When you say you get empty results, is this specifically an empty array, or is there a 502 with a non-JSON response you receive from this call?

Literal values of your HTTP response code and body would be helpful in tracking this down.


while am using twitter mentiom url to download it return an error msg
{“errors”:[{“message”:“Bad Authentication data”,“code”:215}]}
this is my code


the @ symbol is not a valid character for the screen_name parameter – also, the mentions timeline doesn’t take a “screenname” nor “screen_name” parameter.


I think, status/mentions_timeline is no more working… :frowning:


stdClass Object ( [errors] => Array ( [0] => stdClass Object ( [message] => Sorry, that page does not exist [code] => 34 ) ) )


You’re trying to access get/statuses/mentions_timeline instead of statuses/mentions_timeline :slight_smile:


Helpful if a link to the 1.1 endpoint is put for 1/statuses/mentions …
