Default Twitter - Scrape date/time limit?

Sorry if I am posting this in the wrong section or am using JDownloader wrong.

I am trying to scrape a twitter profile (all it's media) but somehow with JDownloader I can not get any futher than 19 March 2019? Everything before March 2019 is not downloaded. How can I download these ?

Kind regards,

Default Twitter - Linkgrabber not doing complete scrape

So I've noticed something recently that's absolutely troubling and I don't know if this has been noted.

While I'm painfully aware of another issue plaguing the Twitter side of things, I feel that at the very I should do my part in at least reporting these things when noticed.

What I'm finding is that when the links are being grabbed, the linkgrabber only goes so far in the past of uploaded files. It's honestly not easy to pin how far Jdownloader goes, or why, but it just does.

So for example on my end, downloading the media of this artist is NEARLY complete, but somehow the last three images (not counting the youtube video posted) just don't get picked up by the Linkgrabber

And a log
13.01.20 06.17.42 <--> 13.01.20 06.43.06 jdlog://9377330900751/

This test can be repeated across other twitter accounts as well.

Funny you're posting this, cause I noticed a similar thing as well. In my case, I was also noticing with someone who hadn't posted since 2017, I wasn't able to get all the stuff from them.

Twitter web-API seems to have a limit which you should even be able to see via browser.
An old note of mine in our code will also tell this:
            /* 2016-11-30: Seems like twitter limits their website to a max "load more" calls of 40. */
40 would mean 40 times loading content by scrolling down.

As said - you can simply test this via browser.

I'am not doing this right now as I don't have the time for that (today).
