Hi, I am quite new to rapidminer. I am trying to extract tweets using the Search twitter operator but I have not been able to extract more than 189 ( which is a really small number for what I'm trying to achieve). I tried using two search twitter operators and used a join operator to concantenate the results which gave me more than 189 tweets. But when I scanned through the results I realized that the two search twitter operators retrieved the exact same tweets, therefore, my result was only bigger because it was made up of duplicates. Please can anyone help me with this, all I want it to be able to extract at least 1,000 tweets

    Sometimes the search term you are searching for will only produce a few results for the current date. You might want to adjust the Until parameter with a date to see if you can get more info.


    OR, you might be rate/throttle blocked by Twitter. If you try to search for more that 3,000ish or so Tweets at one time, Twitter will block or slow you down.
