A stream of Tweets delivered in real-time as they are created based on simple filtering of keywords, user handles, or geo locations
Common use cases:
- Topical analysis
- Event detection
- Analysis of events in real-time
The statuses/filter endpoint has a volume cap of 1% of the total firehose and if the stream’s velocity or throughput exceeds that limit, the stream will begin to drop Tweets. The stream is not a 1% sample; consumption is simply capped at 1%. It delivers complete data based on your filter below that 1% volume threshold.
