Search api doesn't return before 9/12/13 UTC, while widget does


#1

Hi,

Forgive me if this is a duplicate, but, i can’t find any reference to this issue, anywhere.

When searching for tweets with the hashtag #mytweetcap, the search api:
https://api.twitter.com/1.1/search/tweets.json?q=%23mytweetcap&count=100
-can’t get results before 9/12/13 UTC

…which, doesn’t show as many results as the widget on this page:
http://mytweetcap.com/
-once on the above site, please click “load more” to see results before 9/12/13 UTC
-widget html is:

<div id="twitter1" class="hideInFBApp"><a class="twitter-timeline"  href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23mytweetcap"  data-widget-id="368153144158474241">Tweets about "#mytweetcap"</a><!-- customize tweet widget here: https://dev.twitter.com/docs/embedded-timelines#customization --></div>

I’ve tried the “max_id” parameter and also the “since_id” parameter, of the api, but, to no avail.

…any help would be greatly appreciated.

The Search API’s archive only goes back about a week, sometimes a little more and sometimes a little less. The timeline widgets sometimes have access to a little more retrospective data.
