Import Historical Twitter Data Help??

Feb 6, 2015 at 7:02 PM
I am trying to import data on certain topics from prior dates on twitter. I have tried using the advanced search operators from twitter (since & until) to do the search and import, however every time I do it, it says "there are no people in that network", yet when I perform the same search on the twitter site it results in mentions. I am trying the import on the "from twitter search network..." menu. An example of the search I have tried is "microsoft since:2007-02-01 until:2007-02-06". Could someone please let me know what I am doing wrong, or if it is even possible? Thanks!

Thank you for the interest in NodeXL!

Please see:

Twitter limits access to data. It provide only Tweets within the last 7 or 8 days and will deliver no more than 18,000 tweets per query.

Commercial data providers are available. Historical Twitter data is only available through commercial resellers like GNIP, Data Sift, Radian6, and Crimson Hexagon.
