retrieve tweets for longer periods

Hello, I have been trying to retrieve tweets using certain words but I am only able to get those that have been delivered the last few days and they don't add up to more than 100. How can I set up the time range in which I want to get the tweets? Thanks.

Twitter API returns only tweets from the last 7 days and you can get a maximum of 100 tweets per call, but you can make 180 calls in 1 hour (which sums up to 18,000 tweets). If you want to get more you will have to wait too much. I think you get 100 tweets because that is the amount of tweets in the last 7 days.
