import twitter posts > a week

Oct 1, 2014 at 9:48 PM

I want to use twitter & NodeXL for my discourse analysis research. I tried to use "Import from twitter search network" to find the tweets around the topic (education reform) in certain period of time in the past, but I couldn't. Is it true that we can only use the twitter posts that have been posted within a week (7 days)?
I would appreciate if you can share some advice. Thank you!

Thank you for the interest in NodeXL!

Yes. Twitter will not provide any tweet older than about 7 days.

Commercial data providers are available, but they are not inexpensive. See: GNIP, DataSift, Crimson Hexagon, BrandWatch, Radian6.
