Hi DataSift Team,

Could historics search support for sources type: facebook, bitly, tumblr?
(ref: http://dev.datasift.com/docs/api/1/historicsprepare)
I did successful with twitter, but fail with others (server return error code 400).

Thank you,

Vu Le

We do offer Historics searches for each of these data sources. Twitter is the only source enabled by default. To have others enabled, you will need to speak to your DataSift Account Manager.

Thank Jason, another question:

In period testing using API, Is the number of data items received with historics/push/pull mode return less than the number of interactions when checking with https://api.datasift.com/v1/usage?
I did some test using historics/push/pull mode. Number of data items return only 1,2 items, but when checking with https://api.datasift.com/v1/usage API, number of interactions over hundred.

Thanks.

The interaction count for an Historics query will appear against the Historics Playback ID when looking at the /usage endpoint - Historics interaction counts will not appear against the live stream hash.

There should always be parity between the interaction count reported by the /usage endpoint, and the number of interactions you successfully pulled from the /pull endpoint. Note that you may have to hit the /pull endpoint multiple times to return all your interactions - hitting /pull once will only return a limited number of interactions.
