I’m a software developer working on pulling data from Twitter using the REST API. In particular I’m looking to use the retweets/:id API. By accident, I happened to try using the
max_id parameter to this API, and it worked – I was able to retrieve more than 100 retweets of a particular tweet, even though the documentation doesn’t say that this is allowed (see e.g. https://dev.twitter.com/rest/reference/get/statuses/retweets/%3Aid).
Is this officially supported, or did I discover an “undocumented feature” which might get shut down? If it is officially supported, can Twitter update the documentation?
