Fetch Last 6 Month Tweets


#1

Hi Guys,

     How can i get past 6 month tweets using serach api. Is any way to do that.

Thanks in advance

The statuses/user_timeline endpoint will give you up to 3200 tweets, you would need to keep going through this until you have 6 month’s worth - there is no way to get them for a specific period of time, and also no guarantee 3200 tweets would go back 6 months if you’re a very active tweeter.

Thanks for reply but i want to search tweets by keyword using following api

https://api.twitter.com/1.1/search/tweets.json?q=SearckKeyword

but as per doc using that api we can retrieve only past 6 days tweets.

Is any other way to retrieve 6 month tweets.

No, this is not available in the search API. You’d need to use something like Gnip Historical Powertrack to search back further.
