I dont want Source attribute in the result of my call in API V1.1


Hello twitter world,

I don’t want “Source” attribute in a reply of my “Get Search” request in V-1.1. Is there any way out if yes please tell.

Thank You


You can’t really control which fields you will or will not get in the response, with a few minor exceptions. The source field is part of the common Tweet object – if you’re not interested in its contents, just ignore the field.


Yes, Its good idea to ignore it, but clover ETL parser throws parsing error over this field, as it seems like wrong json format is returned with in source like

“source”: “Twitter for Android”,

so multiple double quotes throws error during parsing.

We need to find some solution for this like removing and keeping only url…
