Simplest way to retrieve twitter home_timeline


#1

What would be the simplest way to retrieve a user’s home_timeline history?

So not just the tweets an authenticated user posts, but also the users they follow.

Thanks!

When our Historics service is released in a couple of months, it will be as simple as filtering for 'twitter.user.screen_name == "YourUsername"'. Unfortunately, until the Historics service is released, DataSift can only filter in real-time, so you will only receive Tweets from a user as they are sent.

DataSift does not currently support the ability to find out who users are following. You will need to query the Twitter API to do this.
