Retrieve old tweets


#1

Hello,

I have a question. I’m looking for tweets with the word “coke”.

If I use the following query I can recover up to 100 tweets: https://api.twitter.com/1.1/search/tweets.json?q=coke&count=100

But … How could I retrieve all tweets of the last 3 years (for example)?

Thanks!

The Search API only goes back about 1 week in time – it’s not possible using the REST API to retrieve historical tweets like this. You would have to consider a third party provider of Twitter data that offers historical archives for a fee.

ok, thanks.

Which provider do you recommend?
