How can I get a full tweet with the twitter npm module?


This is what I tried:

var stream ='statuses/filter', {
	follow: following,
	tweet_mode: 'extended'

stream.on('data', function(event) {


If the tweet copy exceeds 140 characters and truncated is true, try event.extended_tweet.full_text to get the full text instead of event.text.

Also the tweet_mode parameter is only valid on the REST API and is not supported when requesting the Streaming API.

You’re using the streaming API, so the tweet_mode parameter is not supported. Look for the extended_tweet section of the Tweet object.
