How to get previous day's tweets?


#1

I was collecting tweets related to some keywords using twitters streaming api… After 6 hours I found out my persistence is not working as I expected it to be My Keywords are very time sensitive and I am afraid those 6 hours matter a lot for my analysis… Is there any way I can get last day’s tweets that contained those keywords… I heard twitter allows us to collect 1 week old data… I tried Topsy ginp but all of them wants me to pay… And I am kinda short on cash right now… So any idea what should I do to get those tweets back??

API that I used was: https://stream.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/filter.json?track=<my_keywordlist>

tl;dr: I want to get the tweets that contained my keywords from yesterday.

If you missed the tweets, your best options are to retrieve partial matching results from what’s available in the Search API (or if you’re aware of the users involved, user timelines), or to utilize the third party data providers you’ve already mentioned.
