Total number of tweets in a dataset

Dec 8, 2013 at 9:50 PM
Hi all:

I have two twitter dataset and would like to know how do i know the total number of tweets in each of them. I set up the maximum limit to 18,000 which is the highest amount i can get. Yet, i do think that i got that much. Is it related to the duplicate edges?

Thank you.

Hello, Carolina:

You most likely did not get 18,000 tweets. Twitter will rarely, if ever, provide NodeXL with that many tweets. For more information on the limits that Twitter places on NodeXL's importation of tweets, please see "number of tweets" at .

Unfortunately, there is no way to find out through NodeXL the total number of tweets that Twitter has for a particular search term.

This has nothing to do with duplicate edges.
