I would love using this but the limitations of Twitter’s APIs only allow third-parties to query *the most recent* 3,000-ish favorites. Have these limits been lifted for FavGuard, or are you only able to query + store the most recent 3,000 favorites?

@mkais yes, see: Things Every Developer Should Know[1], or just make the query and you'll see. try to retrieive anyone's 4,000th favorite — it will fail. The 3,200 limit has been in place since the API was launched years ago, it's pretty annoying. So even tho I have 24k favorites, your service will only work for the first 3,200.
