Total # tweets in the date rangeAvg.

tweets per day

of @ mentions

There’s no API support for this. You’d have to connect to the Streaming API and keep counts of those numbers yourself, I expect.


Hi I am also working on the same. Did you get any solutions?


The solution is to calculate these metrics yourself in code via the timelines or streaming APIs. Unfortunately you won’t be able to do this on a historic basis using the standard free API, but if you wanted to invest in the Gnip APIs you’d have more access to historical data.


Thanks Andy…I will talk with the client about this.
