We are working on an application that creates pictures based on the geo location inside of the tweets. The final goal is to find interesting areas (Hot spots) inside of a town.
I am getting interesting data from a stream with a geo filter.
But the filtered stream isn’t providing us with any Tweet delete information.
This leads us to a problem with the TOS, because we have to keep locally stored data in sync with Twitter. ( => Developer Police: 3 b i )
The sample stream on the other side provides us with all
the delete details, but the percentage of interesting Geo data is very low.
I measured both ways for 10 min and counted the different events.
Data after 10 min with the sample Stream:
AmountJsonObjectReceivedWithGeo: 182 0,4%
Data after 10 min with a filtered Stream
Filter: -180°,-90° … +180°,+90° (whole World)
AmountTweetDeleted: 0 !!!
Is there a way to use the filtered stream and keep my local data in sync with Twitter, so I don’t get into problems with the TOS?
