Favorite_count in response of search API is not sync with real number of likes


#1

Calling https://api.twitter.com/1.1/search/tweets.json?q=#nlp
I receive some tweets almost with favorite_count=0 or another number but when I open the web page of that tweet via
https://twitter.com/{username}/status/{id}
number of likes are more than favorite_count.

It seems they are not sync. What is the reason? How can I retrieve real number of likes done so far?

Hi @HRezaei15 - we cannot guarantee that the information returned by the standard search endpoint is always up to date. If you are looking for better fidelity of results, I suggest you try using the premium version of the search API. You can get started with the free, Sandbox environment.
