I have my own processing layer built for my project which is very well equipped to parse the JSON returned by the Twitter API. However, after having gone through the documentation and played around with the DataSift Streams, I cannot seem to figure out if DataSift returns the same JSON that Twitter does.
The use case scenario would be when I am searching for “#oscars”, I don’t want to seggregate the tweet.text, user.mentions, links, etc. I just want a JSON returned from DataSift that looks exactly like the JSON that would be returned from the Twitter API had I made s Search API call.
Or if there is a combination of filters that would allow me to achieve this, some information regarding that would be helpful.
