Twitter OR operator

search

#1

Hi,

I am using twitter search API and I am retrieving tweets according to the following example using the OR operator:

Messi best actor OR Messi best histrion OR Messi best instrumentalist OR Messi best thespian OR Messi best musician OR Messi best participant OR Messi best player OR Messi good actor OR Messi good histrion OR Messi good instrumentalist OR Messi good thespian OR Messi good musician OR Messi good participant OR Messi good player OR Messi bad actor OR Messi bad histrion OR Messi bad instrumentalist OR Messi bad thespian OR Messi bad musician OR Messi bad participant OR Messi bad player OR Messi worst actor OR Messi worst histrion OR Messi worst instrumentalist OR Messi worst thespian OR Messi worst musician OR Messi worst participant OR Messi worst player OR Messi evil actor OR Messi evil histrion OR Messi evil instrumentalist OR Messi evil thespian OR Messi evil musician OR Messi evil participant OR Messi evil player.

but twitter send me the error code 403, although they specified in their docs that we can use the OR operator to find one or many of these combinations, any idea if I misunderstood someting or my query is wrong?

The API does not support such long queries.
