Finding mentions

Feb 18, 2013 at 9:01 AM

I am working on a Twitter based project in c#/XAML to produce a Windows 8 application.

I begin the project, I can authenticate and search twitter users.

What I want to know is how can I do to give a list of persons that have mentioned the user that I've searched.
I only see myself on the list if I have mentioned this user. And I can see users that mentioned me if I search myself.

So the problem is the function uses the authanticate user mention, but I want to have a general function to do what I have explained.

How can I do that?

And my second question is, how can I get more than 20 tweets in the timeline of the user that I search? I need 800.

Can someone help me please?

I recently answered a question similar to this on SO: list of users that have mentioned the searched user.

On your other question, I wrote a blog post, Working with Timelines with LINQ to Twitter, that might be helpful.
