Invalid JSON primitive

Jul 30, 2012 at 11:27 AM

Hi, I've tried to import Twitter Search Network, but received the following error message:

The network couldn't be obtained. Details:

[ArgumentException]: Invalid JSON primitive: .

Is there any solution for that problem? Twitter user network works fine, but reaches Twitter limit in couple of seconds.

I get this message when Twitter is unreachable.

I just tested a Twitter download and it is now working for me.  Can you try again?

I assumed you were using the NodeXL>Data>Import>From Twitter Search Network.

The Twitter Search Network is working for me as well.  However, maybe there is a particular setting in the Twitter Search Network dialog box that triggers a problem.

Please tell us all the settings you've specified in the dialog box--the term you're searching for, which checkboxes are checked, and so on.  I'll try your exact settings and see what happens on my computer.

Also, what version of NodeXL are you using?  You can tell by going to NodeXL, Help, Help in the Excel ribbon.

It sounds like there was a glitch on Twitter's end.  Thanks for letting us know that it's working now.
