Twitter Timeline

Get timelines over Twitter's API.

Twitter API accepts a determined amount of requests in a 15 minute windows. For more details see API Rate Limits and Rate Limits: Chart .

Options

timeline for
mentions
Returns the most recent mentions (tweets containing a users's @screen_name) of the authenticated user. The amount of request is limited to 15 (user authentication). See GET statuses/mentions_timeline .

user
Returns a collection of the most recent tweets posted by the selected user. The amount of request is limited to 180 (user authentication) or 300 (application authentication), respectively. See GET statuses/user_timeline .

home
Returns a collection of the most recent tweets and retweets posted by the authenticated user and the users they follow. The amount of request is limited to 15 (user authentication). See GET statuses/home_timeline .

retweets
Returns the most recent tweets authored by the authenticated user that have been retweeted by others. The amount of request is limited to 15 (user authentication). See GET statuses/retweets_of_me .
user (only user timeline)
The user from which to retrieve the timeline. If empty the authenticated user will be used.
number of rows
Maximum number of rows that will be retrieved.
number of retries
Sometimes Twitter returns a wrong waiting time until the 15 minute time window is reached; therefore the amount of requests is not fully reseted. In this case the waiting time is multiplied by the number of retries. If the number of retries, i.e. the multiplied waiting time, is not sufficient to reset the amount of requests, the execution will be canceled.
return intermediate results
If the number of retries is not sufficient to reset the amount of requests (and therefore the execution is canceled), the results, which were retrieved until this point in time, will be shown in output table.
fields
Provided information about tweets and users.
