How do i get historic tweets?


I want to get a list of tweets over a certain period eg. an hour, a week in the past. How do I do this?


Our Historics feature is not yet publicly available. It is due to be released within the next couple of months - official date still to be confirmed.

Currently DataSift returns real-time interactions only. The introduction of Historics will allow you to search as far back as January 2010.


ok thanks, that explains why I couldn’t find it in the docs.


The official release date for Historics will be announced closer to the time. Make sure you follow @DataSift and @DataSiftDev to be kept up to date with our latest news and releases.
