    Hi @snehchhabra


    Probably not. I haven't used Twitter for a while now but I can tell you that, at least 6 months ago, one could just retrieve their latest 3200 tweets or try to search about certain terms and filter lots of pages to get a specific one. It is rather difficult to retrieve a larger dataset from Twitter without tricking the API and controlling errors such as repeating tweets. I have yet to see people who can read Twitter data in a specific timespan effectively, almost every dev I see stores daily information into a database or a file log rather than obtaining it from the Twitter API.


    Hope this helps,
