The volume of interactions you receive from DataSift’s YouTube data source will vary depending on what you are filtering on. Regarding how long it takes to receive a given interaction, it could take anything from minutes to months to receive a specific interaction; we do not have a ‘firehose’ partnership with YouTube, so the source is not real-time.
