Streaming a sample of tweets filtered by language


#1

Good afternoon,

I’m looking for the proper way to get a representative sample of tweets written in a determined language. I view two options here:

  • Use the filter endpoint and track the most popular stopwords in this language. I guess I would get up to 1% of tweets written in the language.
  • Use the sample endpoint with the language paramater. I can’t guess the amount of tweets I would get here.

What is the recommended way to go to get a bigger and representative sample?

Thanks!
Luis
