Hi,

The difference between ID and StatusID depends on the context and the API you're using. I've documented most of the API, so you should look there.

Here's an older post on how to work with Twitter Timelines:

http://geekswithblogs.net/Joe/Mayo/archive/2012/09/02/working-with-timelines-with-linq-to-twitter.aspx

It uses an older version of LINQ to Twitter. That means you'll have to change your code, particularly when you're using async/await. The concepts in the blog post around SinceID and MaxID remain the same though. Be sure to read the Twitter documentation too, which explains why they do paging that way.
