Hello @iamontheinet !

Grateful for the upright response till now!

As per the pipeline provided link text it seems FIFA,Trump will give the tweets containing words as mentioned in i/p(like fetches all the tweets having key words and hash tags FIFA,Trump). What should be done in order to get the tweets only with hash tags FIFA,Trump(#FIFA,#Trump) as we give %23 for # in URL?

Suppose I give %23americaneagle%20OR%20%23FIFA in i/p file to get the tweets with hash tags americaneagle and FIFA.How shall I make changes to HTTP Client URL if I want my hash tags to be given as comma separated like american eagle,FIFA(will have to process tweets with those hash tags only) ?

Many Thanks!

Hi Edward,

Assuming you've followed Twitter Search guidelines, I suggest the following.

Instead of .csv file, create a text file with one search phrase/term per line. (See below). This is because 1) it's a cleaner / better implementation for "file tail" operation, 2) You won't run into Twitter's Best Practice clause "Limit your searches to 10 keywords and operators." in a single request, and 3) it's easier to debug.


Then, you can add more terms dynamically at the tail end of the file. This works perfectly for me.

Cheers, Dash

Thanks Dash!It worked.It's fetching live tweets,but to get the older tweets if we want to get from a certain time?

You will need to pass 'until' param, but note that Twitter has a 7 day limit. For more details, refer to Twitter docs --
