Historical Data


#1

Hi,

We’re currently using GNIP for our stuff and would like to explore using DataSift.

What we’re very interested in is getting access to historical data.

Say I want the past 30 days of tweets that have urls referencing a high traffic domain such as apple.com.

What would the cost and technical feasibility of performing such a query be.

Thanks.

This can be accomplished with a simple CSDL definition (for example: twitter.links substr "apple.com" or twitter.retweet.links substr "apple.com") which has a very low DPU cost (0.2). However, the licensing costs would be variable since it would depend how many tweets qualify and returned to you.

One of our team members will be reaching out to you shortly to understand your specific needs and will be able to answer any additional questions.
