    I'm trying to get a user's timeline from twitter and display it in a list view. Currently I have a list view that displays the first 10 tweets in a user's timeline. However the endless scrolling feature doesn't work! No animation is shown when you get to the bottom of the page and no call to twitter is made via http request either (I have looked using wireshark). Below is my source code:

    function loadTwitterFeed() {
        var dataSource = new kendo.data.DataSource({
            transport: {
                read: {
                    url: "http://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.json", // the remove service url
                    dataType: "jsonp" // JSONP (JSON with padding) is required for cross-domain AJAX
                parameterMap: function(options) {
                    return {
                        screen_name: "USER_NAME",
                        count: 10,
                        since_id: options.since_id, //additional parameters sent to the remote service
                        max_id: options.max_id //additional parameters sent to the remove service
            dataSource: dataSource,
            template: $("#twitter-template").text(),
            appendOnRefresh: true,
            pullToRefresh: true,
            //addition parameters which will be passed to the DataSource's read method
            pullParameters: function(item) { //pass first data item of the ListView
                return {
                    since_id: item.id_str
            endlessScroll: true,
            //addition parameters which will be passed to the DataSource's next method
            endlessScrollParameters: function(firstOrigin) {
                if (firstOrigin) {
                    return {
                        max_id: firstOrigin.id_str

    It is similar to the twitter search demo but I have removed the serverPaging from the code as Twitter is getting rid of pages soon and is instead only using max_id and since_id. I've searched the documentation with no luck, it should work!

    Does anybody know what's wrong?


    Link to twitter page on user_timeline: https://dev.twitter.com/docs/api/1/get/statuses/user_timeline

    Example Json request which works when copied and pasted into browser (just replace USER_NAME with valid one): http://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.json?screen_name=USER_NAME&count=10
