Reproduce problem

cursor = tweepy.Cursor(api.user_timeline, screen_name='google', max_id=24130020972)
for tweet in cursor.items():

this will fail, see below

  File "", line 84, in get_tweets
    for tweet in cursor.items():
  File "/Users/andrei/.virtualenvs/ml/lib/python2.7/site-packages/tweepy/", line 181, in next
    self.current_page =
  File "/Users/andrei/.virtualenvs/ml/lib/python2.7/site-packages/tweepy/", line 99, in next
    data = self.method(max_id=self.max_id, parser=RawParser(), *self.args, **self.kargs)
TypeError: _call() got multiple values for keyword argument 'max_id'

>>> import tweepy
>>> tweepy.__version__
(ml)~/repos/github/licenta (master)*$ pip freeze|grep tweepy

Underlaying problem

def f(**kargs):
f(max_id=2, **{'max_id':2})

# fails with
TypeError: f() got multiple values for keyword argument 'max_id'

So doing a pop is necessary there. Also, max_id=None works as expected for twitter API, returns everything as far as I could tell.

…ument 'max_id'.

The problem is that max_id is passed in self.method as param but also
kept in kargs. Doing a kargs.pop with None as default value for 'max_id'
solves the problem as not keeping 'max_id' in two places anymore.
