Fetching More Than 100 Retweets

Is there a way to fetch more than 100 retweets from the retweets REST API, by using paging or something?

Hi,

There are a few REST APIs that handle retweets, you can peruse the list here:

https://linqtotwitter.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Making%20Status%20Queries%20and%20Calls&referringTitle=Making%20API%20Calls

or cross-reference Twitter's API here to see where LINQ to Twitter implements an API:

https://linqtotwitter.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Twitter%20API%20Map&referringTitle=Making%20API%20Calls

If you're using a Status/Retweets query, you're limited to up to 100, which is the Twitter API limitation.

If you're using one of the other Retweet APIs, you can page through the list if the API supports SinceID and MaxID. Here's a blog post I did on paging Twitter timelines:
