Historical PowerTrack (HPT) is built to deliver Tweets at scale using a batch, Job-based design. If you are purchasing a one-time job, you will have to follow a simple process of developing a date range and set of filtering rules, and then downloading the job using one of our recommended processes. Twitter also offers a subscription-based option for those individuals who might want to access more than a single job.
Depending on the length of the request time period, Jobs can take hours or days to generate. A data file is generated for each 10-minute period that contains at least one Tweet. Therefore, a 30-day datasets will commonly consists of approximately 4,300 files regardless of the number of matched Tweets.

Note: Please keep in mind that one-time jobs do not require any work with the Historical PowerTrack API endpoints. Your account manager will do much of this work for you.
