Hello my twitter search node is not returning language information. Instead it’s returning red question marks. Can you please help me?
Hi @watos and welcome to the forum.
It’s likely that something has changed on Twitter’s side since this node was last updated. I pulled a sample of 5000 tweets to check, and from what I can tell several fields come back with only the red question mark (which indicates a missing value in KNIME) - not only language, but latitude, longitude, country, and time zone as well.
Sorry for the trouble. I’ll file a ticket about this and see if we can get it fixed.
(EDIT: Internal reference AP-17713)
Is it possible to collect older tweets with the Twitter Search node, since Twitter API v2 allows academic users to access twitter search from 2006 and not only the last 7 days?
are you an academic user? If so have you tried doing search with Twitter Search node? Can’t say for sure but hopefully node is developed in a way so it takes twitter account type into consideration and doesn’t limit results to 7 days.
Currently, I don’t have access to academic user, but waiting for approval. I will give feedback when I have access to the academic user.
now that I have access to the Academic user, I tried retrieving new tweets, but got the same results of only getting 1070 tweets not older than 7 days. I connected with the new API Keys and Access tokens from my academic user.
How can I specify my search? My topic of interest is about the Afghanistan Crisis, so should I write something like this: Query: #AfghanistanCrisis OR #AfghanistanDisaster from:2021-08-15 until:2021-11-04 lang:en
unfortunately, according to following topic, getting tweets older than 7 days is not possible:
There is an existing ticket (Internal reference: AP-16657) and have given +1 there for you. In case of any news someone will update this topic to notify you.
Hello, is there any update regarding this topic?
Hi @Huseyin - not yet. It will likely take some time since this is something the development team will need to prioritize and consider in more detail.
