How to obtain tweets engagement history?


#1

Can you obtain historical information about a tweet, such as statistics about the RT counts, so I can draw a graph, or do I need to capture hourly / daily and store this myself.

Perhaps this would be restful rather than Streaming API?

Thanks,
Rob.

There is no way to obtain historical information about a Tweet, like it’s RT or Fav count. The only possible way would be to use the Streaming API for the target Account and store when Fav/RT events happen for this User’s Tweets.
