Collecting french tweets using french keywords

streaming
api

#1

Hi,
I am doing French market analysis with collective french keywords. If I am supplying french keywords, it gives me the English tweets (For eg: Black Tea is English and “Thé noir” is french translation for black tea). If I supply this keywords to streaming API it gets me only tweets have “the” keyword and “noir” keyword which is not a french one.

Really need a help Plzz.

Hi Dhuberry,

Are you sure that you are providing the correctly encoded data to the streaming API? The post data for this example should be :

track=Th%C3%A9+noir

And if you want to further help ensure French only, use :

track=Th%C3%A9+noir&language=fr

The search API does normalise characters such that ‘é’ would match ‘e’, but the streaming API matching is more specific, so you should only be getting tweets that contain exactly those two words (though potentially in any position in the tweet).

HTH!

JB.
