I'm working on a project in which I analyze certain tweets from accounts. I was using NCapture for NVivo to download tweets from a particular account into a dataset and import it into NVivo. But it stopped working. Tweets I collected from a user's homepage only went back so far. I used Advanced Search to collect data further back in the timeline, but NCapture won't collect information from the Advanced Search.


Am I doing something wrong? I was told it would still work for advanced search.


Thank you for your advice and help!

What NCapture can capture is determined by Twitter via their API (Application Programming Interface).

When trying to capture tweets older than a couple of weeks you may find that you are not able to capture anything due to this restriction. Relatively old tweets cannot be captured, even via the Advanced Search.


Kind regards,
