Search API not returning tweets older than 13-14 hours


Hi everyone,

I’ve been querying the standard search API for the last few days for any tweets within a specific geography. Everything has been working properly but when I tried to search today starting from the last id that I have (which was Friday afternoon), I was only getting tweets from Saturday 2:43AM and later. Thus I am missing certain tweets from Friday afternoon to Saturaday 2:43AM. Anybody know why this could be happening? Same thing happens when I don’t give any since_id and no limit. I am using Tweepy.

I know the standard search API says it is not necessarily complete but I’ve had never had any gaps before. Thanks a bunch in advance!
