Tweet collection from specific data range


Hi there! I am most definitely not a developer, honestly I don’t know the first thing about coding or anything that goes on around here. I am a Political Science student working on a study that includes data collection (will remain anonymous in my report), however the specific date range I need to look at is long past the 7-10 days that most 3rd party sites are able to provide. I’ve been directed to “twitter apis” a number of times while trying to figure this out, and have avoided looking into it any further because like I said, I know absolutely nothing about coding/developing/etc.
If anyone could help me understand APIs/twitter data collection, or even point me in the right direction, I’d be very grateful.
