Twitter import


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone


I am using NVivo for Mac 11 and I am trying to import Twitter-tweets for specific Hashtags and a certain time in the past (all within a year). But NCapture doesn’t seem to be able to capture anything.

Unfortunately, if I do the same search without the time definition it only captures the tweets from the last few days.

Is there any way around that? Or is it really not possible to go further back?


Thank you so much for any help.

Hi Janina,


NCapture is limited by the Twitter Application Programming Interface (API) along with other variables.The Twitter API determines the content available to be captured as a dataset and imposes limits on how much can be captured. For more information on this, please visit our help page:

The workaround is to capture using the 'Capture as a PDF' option. Before using this, please scroll all the way to the bottom to ensure that you capture all Tweets available.

I hope this helps.

Kind Regards,
