Firstly, thank you for providing us with a such a useful tool!
I am running the code on 26/01/2018 and the maximum number is 18000. I chose to collect the tweets from the last 7 days but it keeps only returns the tweets between 19/01/2018-16/01/2018. I am guessing that it stops after it gets closer to 18000 although it never is 18000. Is there a way to bypass this problem? I need tweets for a month.
Also, as an alternative I tried using the hourly update with 5000 limit, and time set as default. But it does not return anything nor it updates hourly. Is there a specific method to follow to do this? What I am possibly doing wrong?
Hi – the period collects tweets until a date offset so if set to -7days it will only collect the available tweets up to 7days ago (Twitter only provides tweets from ~7-9days. If you set the period to default it will try and collect as many tweets as it can up to the 18,000 limit of last 7-9days (whatever comes first). This will be made clearer in the new version
