The Search API cannot get tweets older than today

Hi,

I have tried to use the Search API to search tweets based on keyword, location and max_id. However, it seems that the search API only returns me the tweets that is published today, instead of tweets in the past 7 days (https://dev.twitter.com/rest/public/search). Is this what this API intend to act like this? Is there anything I can do to obtain data elder than today?

Thanks

And Search API returning less result than usual. I have searched some popular words, but it only gives me back 700 tweets back…

What search terms and parameters are you using?

For example, I tried [q=“Lyft”, count=100, geo_code="-122.4194,37.7749,150km",lang=‘en’] and it only returns about 700 tweets published today.

And the API is GET search/tweets (https://dev.twitter.com/rest/reference/get/search/tweets)
