    I am wondering if I have done something wrong, but I only seem to be capturing 140 characters. Is there a way to adjust TAGS to capture longer Tweets or has Twitter broken TAGS?


    Hi Aaron – I think this was an issue with older versions of TAGS (only recently fixed ~1-2 months ago). All is not lost as TAGS has a ‘build archive from tweet IDs’. If you take a fresh copy and run this option from the TAGS menu it will create a sheet which you can copy the id_str column from your existing archive. Run TAGS > build archive from tweet IDs again and it will populate the archive sheet with complete tweets. Once this is done you can setup you search term as before on the readme/settings sheet and continue the hourly collection with TAGS > update every hour

    Thank you Martin, I was running 6.1. I downloaded a new copy. A good lesson to learn.

    Just a minor point. The new copy says 6.1.6 in the file name, but 6.1.7 in header of the sheet.
