Snapbird is a software layer on top of Twitter's API (the programatic access to Twitter data). Snapbird itself is bound by the limits of Twitter's API, and each search axis has it's own hard limits on the number of results it can return. Below are those limits.
|Timeline ("Someone's timelime")||3,200||900 / 15 mins||docs|
|Likes ("Someone's likes")||3,200||800 / 15 mins||docs|
|Home timeline ("Your friend's tweets")||800||15 / 15 mins||docs|
|Mentions ("Tweets mentioning you")||800||75 / 15 mins||docs|
|DM/sent ("Your sent direct messages")||200||15 / 15 mins||docs|
|DM ("Your received direct messages")||200||15 / 15 mins||docs|
Note that Snapbird's software requests tweets in large bulks to avoid rate limits.
