  [obscured]  /doc/get/statuses/user_timeline

screen_name = username from table 'users'
since_id = set as the most recent tweet id already stored in the tweets table (this should prevent multiple tweets from being stored and reduce load on server
page = (you may need to loop through multiple pages. 20 tweets returned / page)
include_rts = 1
include_entities = 1

**Never load more than 100 new Tweets


Table A: users
Field 1:...
