Missing details in the search/tweets API docs


#1

I’ve discovered two errors / missing details in the search/tweets API docs (https://dev.twitter.com/docs/api/1.1/get/search/tweets)

  1. result_type claims to default to “mixed”. In my own experiments it seems to default to “recent”. Is that correct now?

  2. There is no explanation of how “since_id” works with “result_type”. In particular, it gets you the most recent Tweets since the id, not the Tweets just after the id.

  3. since_id seems to be exclusive, and max_id inclusive (of the id you give it). This makes sense, but should be documented!

Hope this helps someone and/or make its way into the docs. Or my errors are corrected!
