Search.SearchTweets(searchParameter); suddenly returning null

Nov 30, 2014 at 1:04 PM
I was successfully downloading tweets using Search.SearchTweets(searchParameter); but for some reason it now throws an null exception error.

I did make a search request with 100,000 results and I thought that could possibly result in a ban of some sort, but var tweets = Timeline.GetHomeTimeline(); does work and returns results and when I go to the application management screen I don't see any indication of a ban.

Any idea why this call is no longer working.

Tweetinvi is returning null when an exception is being thrown by the Twitter API.

I believe you are reaching the RateLimits.

You can also check the exception that was thrown with the ExceptionHandler
