How to get more than 15 popular tweets?


#1

When I use the search/tweets endpoint and I specify both a count and result type I get unexpected results in response if my result type is popular or mixed. If it is popular I get 15 tweets no matter what I put for count. If it is mixed, I get 15 popular tweets and X recent tweets, where X is the the value I give for the count parameter.

Examples -
count = 5, result_type = recent -> 5 tweets
count = 50, result_type = recent -> 50 tweets
count = 5, result_type = popular -> 15 tweets
count = 50, result_type = popular -> 15 tweets
count = 5, result_type = mixed -> 20 tweets
count = 50, result_type = mixed -> 55 tweets

First question - Is it supposed to work this way?

If yes - Where is this info in the docs? and How do I get more than 15 popular tweets?

If no - When will it be changed to work as expected? and Is there any workaround until that point?

Bump? I’m new to these forums so I don’t know if that works.
