API stops returning favorites


I am able to use the REST API to return favorites for a specific user. It works fine but after retrieving a few thousand favorites the API stops returning older favorites. I know it’s not a rate limit issue, as many days have gone by but the API still returns nothing when I try to fetch favorites. Is there a limitation Twitter is not telling us about? I know tweets have a 3,200 limit (but returns next batch of 3,200 if recent 3,200 are deleted). Doesn’t seem to be the same way with favorites. Any insights here?


Hi - how far back in time were you able to go before you stopped receiving favorites? I’m guessing the issue here is that you are restricted in how far back in time you can go and you will be unable to get favorites beyond a certain date in time.
