In parallel to the existing capabilities to search for Twitter content, STORY also includes access to the Twitter Firehose.
This channel guarantees completeness of all Tweets around a particular topic/#hashtag, irrespective of volume and speed. This way all chatter around massive events like the Oscars, the Superbowl or the Eurovision Song Contest can be tracked in real-time.
In addition, this method is critical for contests where the legal obligation exists to capture literally all Tweets around a call-to-action, before drawing prizes/winners.
We’re pleased to say that our migration to GNIP version 2.0 is complete. This means new features and enhanced reliability to ensure you get every Tweet you need.
Shout out to GNIP and Twitter Boulder for the hoodies!
