I’m making a little application a friend of mine requested.
He wants to see all his mentions from this week. I figured out how to do it but keep reaching the limit (while debugging)
So I wanted to see how I could make it work properly and looked up the GET statuses/mentions_timeline in the documentation.
In the description of this function it says "This method can only return up to 800 tweets."
There is also this parameter “count” which stands for how many tweets you want to get. The maximum count is 200.
Does this simply mean I can’t get more than 800 mentions?
What happens if I got lets say 1200 mentions in a week.
Do I lose the first(oldest) 400 mentions or can I still get those by using the “max_id” parameter?
If thats the fact, what exactly is ment by “This method can only return up to 800 tweets.”?
I find it a bit confusing, any help or clarification will be appreciated.
