Twitter - Historic API


#1

Hi, currently I’m writing a Java code (on eclipse) to retrieve historic data in twitter. The data need to be pulled in certain date in past. For example, December 2013 - February 2014. I need to set a query, to retrieve data that only contain these words : birthday, Christmas, etc. And the results in Json.

I already read through the Historics API : Step by Step but I don’t get any idea ( sorry for being a bit dumb, I’m a beginner here). Could you please provide me any links for example code that might help me on this? Code in Java and running on Eclipse :slight_smile:

Thanks!

We provide a Java Client library that fully supports the DataSift API, and includs examples of compiling streams and creating Historics. It is also available on Maven.
