Search api not returned some tweets

search

#1

E.g. I have request:

aapl since:2017-02-28 until:2017-03-02

I’m using next code:

    async def search(self, request, terminator=None, text_preprocessor=None):
        """
        Search for tweets
        :param request: search request
        :type request: str
        :param terminator: function that'll return true to stop search
        :type terminator: (list[(str, datetime.datetime, int)])->bool
        :param text_preprocessor: function that preprocess tweet texts before cleaning
        :type text_preprocessor: (str)->str
        :return: pairs text-uid
        :rtype: list[(str, datetime, int)]
        """
        print(request)
        async def nop(_):
            return False

        def text_nop(txt):
            return txt

        if terminator is None:
            terminator = nop
        if text_preprocessor is None:
            text_preprocessor = text_nop
        params = {
            "q": request,
            "count": 100,
        }
        statuses = []
        while True:
            response = await self.peony.api.search.tweets.get(**params)
            new_statuses = list(map(
                lambda status: (
                    TwitterClient._clean(text_preprocessor(status['text'])),
                    TwitterClient._time(status['created_at']),
                    status['user']['id'],
                ),
                response["statuses"]))
            statuses += new_statuses
            if "search_metadata" in response and "next_results" in response["search_metadata"]:
                params = TwitterClient._next_results_params(response["search_metadata"]["next_results"])
            else:
                break
            if await terminator(new_statuses):
                break
        print(len(statuses))
        return statuses

But it return empty result. And, of course - in twitter UI I see non-empty resutl for same request.

p.s. ok, I found that search api may not return results older then week.
