Collecting past data of a suspended twitter account




Gnip does provide backfill of past data for an active twitter handle. Can we do the same for a twitter handle that has been suspended/deleted now ?


I really don’t know about Gnip - but normally, deleted tweets and accounts are gone forever. Suspended accounts and tweets become available again if the account is unsuspended. I doubt Gnip will let you access suspended accounts & tweets but if an account becomes unsuspended, I assume Gnip backfill should work as usual?


Hi there,

Deleted Tweets and Tweets from deleted or suspended accounts are not available from any Gnip/Twitter API.
