Older search query on twitter not embedding: hmm, an empty timeline that's weird.

Hey everyone,

I've successfully embedded hashtag search twitter feeds onto Google sites before but am currently getting the error 'hmm, an empty timeline that's weird' message when I try to create my twitter gadget when I create it as many of the tweets were done a few months ago. I can search the hashtag successfully on twitter and the results show, but not see those same tweets on my embed code configurator?

I tried an advanced twitter search and set the search parameters to begin from January 1 2015 which would encompass the tweets I need but I still get the error message when I try to see them in the configurator.

How do I adjust the code so that it registers all tweets with the hashtag I want, regardless of how long ago they were tweeted? I want the feed on the site to last for as long as the project demands.

Thanks in advance!

Our Twitter Gadget only displays tweets that are a maximum of 5 days old. If you would like to display tweets older than that, you would need to find a workaround. I would suggest using the Web Page Widget with a website that will display the hashtags you want to see.
