Retrieving user tweets (no replies) in a very active account


#1

Hi all,
I’m doing a web job for a client that has a super active account (over 300K tweet to date, over 1K daily).
The goal is to display only original tweets by the client, and exclude all replied tweets. I tried using -
https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/user_timeline.json?screen_name=xxx&trim_user=true&exclude_replies=true&count=10
but I only get 1 item in the json response. It actually doesn’t matter if count=10 or count=1000, I still get only 1 item. (without the count attribute I get an empty response).
I assume that this happens because of the count limit, and the fact that my client had more than ‘count-limit’ between his last two original tweets.
is there a way around this? any suggestions?
thanks,
Mattan.
