problem in displaying all older tweets

Hi Everyone,

I want to display all the older tweets in my application. I am using jquery plugin(jquery.tweet.js) for that. I am getting only 9 days old tweets. Is it possible to get all the older tweets. If yes, please help me out.


Although I am not too familiar with that plugin, I am familiar with Twitter's APIs. The Twitter API's are fairly limited in their ability to return historical content. The number of tweets and how far back they go, depends on the number of tweets that match your criteria. For example, if you were to use their search api for a trending topic, chances are you will only receive a sample of content going back a few minutes. However, if you try and access keywords that are not used often, you will get virtually 100% of the results going back several weeks.

Hope that helps.
