Twitter API search only returning data since midnight

Jan 28, 2016 at 10:45 AM
I have just bought the Pro Licence. But have just run a Twitter hashtag search (#NHSTform) but it only returns the Tweets since midnight even when i use the since:2016-01-24 operator. As a user of the previous version this was not a problem.

Is this a Pro issue or a Twitter limiting issue? If I can only get the data to previous midnight then this is not going to be much use to me.

Twitter has a limit of 18.000 tweets or 7 days (whichever comes first). Please have a look at this post

Here is a sample map that gets a little bit more data by using the SINCE: and UNTIL: operators.

NHSTform since:2016-01-21 until:2016-01-27 via NodeXL

I used Since: and Until : operators to scope the query.

Twitter controls the API and throttles it based on unknowable parameters, essentially the more the volume of tweets == less tweets delivered.

One alternative is to do day long slices and append them in order to maximize the data available from Twitter.
