Twitter user_timeline using postman power BI

Problem 1:

 

I am using Postman to get User_Timeline from Twitter. I am using OAuth 1 as specified by youtube. I am able to fetch the data I need but 24 hrs later I am forced to update the power query with a new OAuth signature from Postman. I did not find any article where I can prevent doing these changes daily and keep it static. Need help here, want to find is there any way I can get Twitter user_Timeline data? If postman, then how do I prevent updating the OAuth every day?

Problem 2: 

I am able to fetch only 200 records, how do I fetch multiple records from Twitter to PBI using postman? (User_timeline only)

Hi @skipper ,

Problem 1:

As far as I know from the official Twitter Developer document, it seems to be inevitable.

"Note: the 24-hour request limit is based on a rolling clock, beginning at the time of the first request and monitored for the next 24 hours."

 

Problem 2:

"This method can only return up to 3,200 of a user's most recent Tweets."

You can try to add offset parameter in postman about API pagination.

Please refer this simliar issue: How to send more than 100 records using API?
