I’m trying to use GET statuses/sample from the streaming API to build a large sample of public tweets and have two questions.
When I try to access GET statuses/sample, I’m only getting recent tweets (i.e. tweets made in the past couple of days, if not in the past hour). is this normal? My understanding was that I should be getting tweets from the past as well…
Does the output of GET statuses/sample include the date/time the tweet was posted?
