Embedding Search Timelines - Hmm, an empty timeline. That's weird

Hi there,

I’m trying to create a widget to generate embed code for a Hashtag Search Query. I can enter more generic searches like #TonyRomo and in the preview the timeline generates correctly, but when I enter #TonyBot (which is what I need), I keep getting the “Hmm, an empty timeline. That’s weird.” error message. When I search #TonyBot on the site directly it populates with tweets, so finding it strange it’s not appearing in the widget. Does anyone have any ideas how to correct this?

Thanks!
Daniella

The last time #TonyBot was used in a Tweet (apart from your test Tweet) was in June. The search timeline widget only supports up to 7 days of history. It looks like you’ve used a recent test account for the new Tweet, and the search index may not instantly index all Tweets for the API to display.

Amazing. Thanks for clarifying and getting back to me so quickly. That’s much appreciated.
