5000 accounts limit


#1

Hi,

I have an application that will soon reach the 5000 accounts limit of the Streaming API.
Is there an easy way to extend that limit, or bypass it?

Two options here:

  • select and purchase a Gnip data product that meets your requirements and is not limited in this manner. This is our fully-scalable real-time API intended for larger scale data ingest and analysis.
  • wait for our scalable Account Activity API to become fully available, which will in time replace the user streams and site streams APIs and will provide the ability to scale your access as required on a commercial basis beyond the standard limits.

There is no way to exceed the 5000 account tracking restriction on the old-style streaming API endpoint.

ok, thanks!
