Our Plugins support some advanced features which will be explained here.

Special URL parameters which can be used as abort conditions for profile crawling

  • maxitems -> Define how many tweets of a profile should be crawled at most
  • max_date -> Only crawl items until end of day before this date

Usage example:
If you want to crawl and only want to crawl the first 50 items, add it like this:

Of course you can include both abort conditions at the same time like this:
This will crawl up to 50 items or tweets until max posted date of 2022-01-14 11:59PM.
The abort condition which is reached first will abort the crawl process.
