Direct Message tweets

#1

We are looking to pull DMs of customers’ interactions on Twitter. It looks
like we can only pull 200 of the most recent DMs using the direct_messages.json
endpoint and 3200 of the most recent tweets using statuses/user_timeline.json
endpoint. Is there another endpoint we can use to pull historical tweets?


#2

Historical Tweets are covered by the commercial data products from Gnip. Timelines on the standard API are limited to 3200 Tweets and there is no ability to go back any further.

Note that the new Direct Message APIs currently in beta extend the access to Direct Message objects to the past 30 days, not just the last 200.
