user_timeline is ignoring certain paramters


#1

I am fetching a user timeline with this url:

https://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.rss?screen_name=insert user name&include_rts=true&exclude_replies=false

It pulls all my tweets and retweets, but it does not pull any tweets that other users post on my timeline.

What could the possible problem be?

user_timeline: “Returns the 20 most recent statuses posted by the authenticating user.”

You want home_timeline: “Returns the 20 most recent statuses, including retweets if they exist, posted by the authenticating user and the user’s they follow.”

See: https://dev.twitter.com/docs/api/1/get/statuses/home_timeline

I’m trying to pull some account’s statuses including retweets, I checked that I’m using api.twitter.com and also set the include_rts option, but still I can’t get any retweets in the result

https://api.twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline.json?include_rts=true&user_id=144697174

Any help?

That’s not a valid API URL – you need to have a version number in the URL like : https://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.json?include_rts=true&user_id=144697174
