Removing words from Streaming API results


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?


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



thanks for the quick reply
