Standard Search Limited


Hi there,

I’m using the standard search API to get all tweets related with a certain hashtag. I know that there’s a 7 days frame. The searches that I’m doing are between that range.

The first time I make the call to the API, I request 100 results. I get then “next_results” value which contains a max_id in the query and perform a new request to get the next 100.

This works with two loops, the third one comes without the next_results and the search process ends.

Why? Is the API limited to that? I’m missing something?

Thanks for your help.


The only thing I can guess about here is that you’re capping out the result set - depending on the search term and the oldest Tweet you retrieve, but maybe that really is all the data? (have not been able to verify with a search myself yet)
