Timeline embed without -RT oddly limiting tweets

#1

I’m using the timeline embed search but wanted to remove retweets, as they were causing duplicate content to show up in the timeline. I’m now using " -RT" in my query in the widget builder, which seems to work… but the timeline quickly gets to a “There are no more Tweets in this stream.” message. If I do the same search at Twitter.com, I can see there are many more. Why would this happen just in the timeline embed? Is there a workaround?

An embedded search timeline widget uses the public REST search API. The API includes only recent Tweets, ~7 days.
