Find tweets with tags


#1

Hi, when using the Twitter api, with multiple sdk to be sure, I can only find some tweets when searching for “#ELinGO”. However, when searching on the webpage, I can find all the tweets I am looking for. Anybody experiencing this or have an idea about what this could be?

There are only two Tweets that use that hashtag in the past week. The Search API index is limited to 7 days.

If you need higher-fidelity historic search, you need to look at the commercial Gnip offerings.

the REST API Search and Web Search are different systems - so you might get different results. REST API is limited to last ~7 days. Using #ELinGO as a track term in a Filter Stream will get you far more, if you want all future tweets that have #ELinGO
