Select amount of Hashtags

Feb 10, 2015 at 8:22 AM
I use Search.SearchTweets("#hashtag") to look forets containing a specific hashtag.
The problem is: I get only a few newer tweets. Is there a possibility to select also older Hashtags?

Second question:
I want to display how often a hashtag was used.
Is there a possibility to select only the count of all hashtags?
This would be really great if you just want to know how often for example the #facebook hashtag was used. (It does take very long to select all entries. Is there a solution to get only the count?)

Thanks for your help.

I found on that there is no solution to get tweets older than two weeks or so. Is there really no possibility (provided by twitter) to do this until now?

Is there a solution to get only the amount of all Hashtags?

Hi the answer to both question is no.
As discussed in the discussion you referenced you will have to get store these information yourself using a FilteredStream.

There is no free other option that I am aware of.
