    I want to stream a users timeline from twitter into a listview. I have tried to do this using the pull to refresh - scroll to load example and querying the username instead of html5. However this doesn't return all the users tweets only tweets up-to a certain date (17/10/2012 - 09/10/2012 no later!). So I changed the datasource to the code below:

    var dataSource = new{
        serverPaging: true,
        pageSize: 10,
        transport: {
            read: {
                // the remote service url
                // JSONP is required for cross-domain AJAX
                dataType: "jsonp",
                // additional parameters sent to the remote service
                data: {
                    screen_name: "USER_ID"
        schema: { // describe the result format
            data: "results" // the data which the data source will be bound to is in the "results" field

    This doesn't work and nothing loads! I can't work out what's different from this apart from using 'screen_name' instead of 'q'. The query works if you put it into your browser: "". 

    The documentation from Twitter can be found here:

    What is wrong? Why isn't it working?
