Search full_text tweets in Sandbox premium acct


i need to do opinion mining among tweets about specific tourism keywords for academic research, hence full_text tweets would be great for my purpose and tokenizing words.
its possible to use tweet_mode parameter in Standard search but not in sandbox.

kindly advise as confused what to do and my 250 free monthly query gone one by one :frowning:


Hi @Hamedhamedf - as outlined in our documentation, you do not need to use the tweet_mode parameter with the premium sandbox version of the API. The full_text of a Tweet is automatically returned in the response payload, under the extended_tweet section of the response payload.

You can see this in the example response payload below:
