I'd install an R package twitterR in my RStudio for accessing Twitter data for a particular handle. But whenever I do try to access the Twitter data it's showing me an unexpected message:

In doRppAPICall(“search/tweets”, n, params = params, retryOnRateLimit = retryOnRateLimit, :
100 tweets were requested but the API can only return 0

Any thoughts on that?

I tried different parameters, handles and functionalities but still getting the same issue.

Here's my code for the particular functionality--

my_tweets <- searchTwitter('@jabhij', geocode='20.593684, 78.96288, 2000km', n = 100)
my_tweets_df <- do.call("rbind", laaply(my_tweets, as.data.frame))
View(my_tweets_df)

Any thoughts on that will be very helpful. Cheers! :)

It's because of the whitespace in the parameter for geocode.

It should be:

my_tweets <- searchTwitter('@jabhij', geocode="20.593684,78.96288,2000km")

Had the same issue. Your parameters are in the wrong order, place n before geocode. You must also avoid any whitespace within the geocode.
