Downloading tweets using the twitteR package in R


I am downloading data using twitteR package in R using the searchtwitter query . If I get less than 1500 tweets in a query as my output can I assume this dataset complete? I mean does it mean there were less than 1500 tweets satisfying the search criterion or is it just giving me a fraction of the tweets satisfying the search criterion


Can someone please answer the above question. I am also facing a similar situation, where the searchTwitter query is returning less than 1500 tweets. Does that imply it’s an exhaustive list of tweets satisfying my query parameters.
