R package TwitteR problems/retryonratelimit=0


Hello. I have been trying to set up a connection to Twitter api with R. I have seemingly managed to get authorization correct. Atleast without error messages, though this was bit of a hurdle and I am still somewhat skeptical of having done it properly. Anyhoo, I try to use searchTwitter-function to find some tweets but to no avail. The error message I receive is thus:

Warning message:
In doRppAPICall(“search/tweets”, n, params = params, retryOnRateLimit = retryOnRateLimit, :
1 tweets were requested but the API can only return 0

I use the following code:


# 1. Find OAuth settings for twitter:
#    https://dev.twitter.com/docs/auth/oauth

# 2. Register an application at https://apps.twitter.com/
#    Make sure to set callback url to ""
#    Replace key and secret below
myapp <- oauth_app("twitter",
                   key = "",
                   secret = ""

# 3. Get OAuth credentials
twitter_token <- oauth1.0_token(oauth_endpoints("twitter"), myapp)

# 4. Use API
req <- GET("https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/home_timeline.json",
           config(token = twitter_token))

api_key <- ""

api_secret <- ""

access_token <- ""

access_token_secret <- ""



What ever could be the problem? :frowning: Is this problem with authentication or somehow with my own Twitter app and it’s permissions? (I listed topic here rather than under OAuth section because I seemingly manage to get authentication done correctly)
