    hi, as of today (19.11.14), twitter has opened up to allow searching all the way back to its inception in 2006, lifting the 7 day limit. Is it possible to access this via TAGS?



    I also am trying to search for old tweets. For example, the term: “hello since:2007-01-01 until:2007-01-03” yields no result, although there are results through Twitter Search:



    TAGS uses the official Twitter API which is limited to searches made on We are effectively second class citizens. Given Twitter has a number of data resellers selling historic data I don’t see this changing soon

    note that the search results at may return historical results while the Search API usually only serves tweets from the past week. [Ref]
