Removing words from Streaming API results


#1

Does the Streaming API have any “remove keyword” filtering on the API?

In the “Search API” one an apply filters such as “beer” and “-rootbeer” which will return “beer” but NOT “rootbeer” -

The Streaming API rejected my string with some “ocean -frankocean” as an invalid filtering term when I included this list - is it the developers responsibility to filter the Streaming API tweets the same way “Search” would?


#2

Yes, the Streaming API doesn’t support any kind of exclusionary logic. You would need to do post-filtering on application-side.


#3

understood.

thanks for the quick reply
