Twitter Api giving only tweets of Last Couple of days


Hi, Recently I implemented OAuth in our Ruby on Rails application with OAuth gem and started using it.

Technology :- Ruby On Rails

Before Implementing OAuth, I use to call the below URL it use to give the tweets properly,

But, After Implementing Oauth, I am calling the Below URL :-

Which is not giving the Tweets properly, i.e the result set is containing only Tweets of last couple of Days.

How to retrieve tweets from last two months or more than that?

Thanks & Regards,


With both versions of the Search API, the results only go back about a week. You can’t use the search API to get older tweets at this time. Consider a partner provider of Twitter data such as Topsy, Gnip, or DataSift.


Thanks for your time and concern.
