Get tweets from private list


Is it possible to query tweets from a private list?

twurl /1.1/search/tweets.json?q=screen_name/my_private_list


Private lists are not indexed for search. You can, however, include a public list as a parameter of a standard search query, e.g.

twurl "/1.1/search/tweets.json?q=list:NASA/astronauts-in-space-now1 AND space"

See the standard search documentation for more information on this.

Alternatively, you could get the list timeline (assuming the list is one you have permission to see, i.e. you are using the owner’s user token in the case of a private list), and then filter it for your search terms yourself.
