Pulling in domain.com through streaming API


#1

Question:

When searching for, say, CNN.com natively on Twitter, you get results of all URLs shared from CNN.com, even if the URL is shortened through a 3rd party service such as bit.ly.

However, in my streaming API application, I’m only getting tweets that contain exactly “CNN.com”.

Any ideas? Is this not supported in streaming API?

Thanks so much in advance.

Tracking tweets around a domain name isn’t possible with the Streaming API today; unfortunately, you would need to name each distinct possible URL as a keyword in order to track – obviously not scalable for large sites.

Thank you. To quote Jim Carey from Dumb and Dumber… “So you’re telling me there’s still a chance” (in the future)
