It would help if you'd say what you're seeing compared with what you expect to see.

This is a bug in the latest version of the Twitterizer Library.

If you run into any other issues, please contact the Twitterizer group directly, on our site ( you'll find links to our mailing list, twitter account, and you can submit but reports directly to our team.

Here's how to get a user's timeline without using oAuth or any authentication, for that matter:

UserTimelineOptions options = new UserTimelineOptions();
options.ScreenName = "SCREENNAME OF TWITTER USER";
TwitterStatusCollection tweets = TwitterTimeline.UserTimeline(options).ResponseObject;

Your code is correct, however developer should consider authenticating more often than not. Using OAuth provides 350 requests per hour PER USER, whereas non-authenticated requests are limited to 100 requests per hour PER IP ADDRESS.

I have to agree with Eric. I only looked at Twitterizer for a few hours, and I have not found one example that shows how to load a user's timeline without authorization.

Will I figure it out eventually? Yeah, I'll have to and I will; but it will take me forever.

The link that Ricky Smith gave ( doesn't have this kind of simple example. The tutorials available on the internet that I found for twitterizer2, even those are not up-to-date and don't quite work or are missing information.

Ricky, how about being a lifesaver to me and others and showing us how to simply look at a user's public timeline, so there's no need for authorization? Whaddya'say?

Try this: `TwitterTimeline.UserTimeline(new UserTimelineOptions() { ScreenName = "twitterapi" };`
