> At the moment, the captureTwitterTimeline function in TwitterTimelineProvider only tries
one attempt at fetching a user's timeline. In the event of an exception being thrown, we simply
drop the data we were trying to collect. We should instead attempt 5 times in order to allow
enough time for Twitter's backoff
