I am developing an application to guess locations of tornadoes by analyzing twitter data. For this, I would first need to train a neural network on some manually annotated tweets. To begin with, I am trying to get tweets from last year which have the word 'tornado' in them. This is a part of my code below :-
Query query = new Query("tornado");
QueryResult queryResult = instance.search(query);
tweetList = queryResult.getTweets();
I am able to retrieve tweets from periods closer to now such as last week and such, but am unable to get any results for periods such as the one listed above. Any clues, suggestions would be of help. Thanks in advance.
