馃И Limitations & Solutions

By default, Twitter returns around 800 results per search query. To overcome this limitation, you split your search by different date ranges. Simply search for the same keyword/query multiple times but using different date ranges. You can build your query and initiate multiple API calls, such as:

https://twitter.com/search?q=apify%20until%3A2023-02-31%20since%3A2023-01-01&src=typed_query&f=live - Searches for the keyword apify from 2023-01-01 until 2023-01-31 https://twitter.com/search?q=apify%20until%3A2023-02-28%20since%3A2023-02-01&src=typed_query&f=live - Searches for the keyword apify from 2023-02-01 until 2023-02-28 https://twitter.com/search?q=apify%20until%3A2023-03-31%20since%3A2023-03-01&src=typed_query&f=live - Searches for the keyword apify from 2023-03-01 until 2023-03-31 https://twitter.com/search?q=apify%20until%3A2023-03-31%20since%3A2023-03-01&src=typed_query&f=live - Searches for the keyword apify from 2023-04-01 until 2023-04-30

馃敡 Troubleshooting

  • Getting Few Results? Check "Maximum number of items on output" (maxItems) field, and "Maximum charged results" fields. These two fields enable you to handle the total number of results. Leaving both empty will result infinite results.
  • Are Some Outputs Missing? Ensure that you review all fields, not just the overview. You can navigate to the "Storage" tab and select either "Download the results" or "Open in a New Tab."
  • Getting No Results? Confirm that your parameters are not overly restrictive.
  • Incomplete Tweet Collection? Keep in mind that sensitive or spam-filtered comments may not be accessible for scraping. Additionally, in a surface-level run, replies to replies might not be included in the collected data.
  • Not Receiving New Tweets After a Large Batch? Examine the log for messages like "Logging is too fast, some lines were skipped." If you encounter this issue, consider scraping smaller amounts of data to avoid it.
