I know that the standard search API provides sampled results. The sampling is done before the filtering.
I have two questions :
- Am I right ?
- What is the sampling ratio ? Even if it varies, do we at least know it’s order of magnitude ? (I’ve understood that Twitter doesn’t want to communicate on how exactly is the sampling done)
To give an example : Using the standard search API I’ve found 1000 tweets concerning a certain subject during a certain period of time. I would like to have an estimation of the total number of tweets concerning this subject during the same period of time (is it more like 10k or 100k or something else ?).
Thank you !
