- Twitter account should not be set as “Protect my Tweets”.
- Twitter search API can only grab the items that are posted in the last 7 - 9 days.
- Twitter API does not provide the image data for re-tweets.

- Getting feed from other Instagram accounts which you have not listed under your connected account(s) may not be possible if your website server IP is getting banned by Instagram.
- Pinterest re-shared items will not include the original shared item.
