In other words, I can start a filter now and run it for a day on the real time stream(s) and that will cost me an amount of DPUs which is a function of the number of “real hours” the filter was running (for example 24 hours), I also understand that there is a cost related to the amount of results I got but lets put this aside.
My question is if I run the same filter on a day in the past (lets say 1/1/2012) then would I pay the same amount (same DPU) since I run my filter on 24 hours of data? or would I pay on the time it would take Datasift to execute the filter (hopefully this will be few minutes)
If the answer is 24 hours also for historical data, then I would like to say that its a little bit too much for Datasift to ask,
The real power of twitter is in real time and the only reason I would be running on something from two years ago is because I want to research the filter results so I will have some understand on to what to expect from real-time data.
