Name Required Description Default Value Example
list_id required The numerical id of the list.    
slug required You can identify a list by its slug instead of its numerical id. If you decide to do so, note that you’ll also have to specify the list owner using the owner_id or owner_screen_name parameters.    
owner_screen_name optional The screen name of the user who owns the list being requested by a slug .    
owner_id optional The user ID of the user who owns the list being requested by a slug .    
since_id optional Returns results with an ID greater than (that is, more recent than) the specified ID. There are limits to the number of Tweets which can be accessed through the API. If the limit of Tweets has occured since the since_id, the since_id will be forced to the oldest ID available.    
max_id optional Returns results with an ID less than (that is, older than) or equal to the specified ID.    
count optional Specifies the number of results to retrieve per “page.”    
include_entities optional Entities are ON by default in API 1.1, each tweet includes a node called “entities”. This node offers a variety of metadata about the tweet in a discreet structure, including: user_mentions, urls, and hashtags. You can omit entities from the result by using include_entities=false    
include_rts optional When set to either true , t or 1 , the list timeline will contain native retweets (if they exist) in addition to the standard stream of tweets. The output format of retweeted tweets is identical to the representation you see in home_timeline.
