Full Archive Sandbox - Random Sample of Tweets


#1

Is it possible to somehow make a query that will just return a random sample of historical tweets, rather than tweets based on a keyword? I’m trying to put together a data set akin to the “firehose” that was released to some developers and academics several years ago.

Hello @jp1025,

While we do have an operator that provides you a random sample (sample:), it is only available with the PowerTrack products (Enterprise Historical PowerTrack, Enterprise PowerTrack (realtime), and Replay).

You can see a list of the available operators by product at the following link:
