Streaming API Client using https://stream.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/firehose.json "The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden."


#1

When I build my Streaming API Client and try to make HTTP Web Request, I receive “The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden.”. Before making a call I create Authorization Header for the HTTP Web Request and when just trying to hit https://stream.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/firehose.json url with Http Web Request with no success at this time.

Can you please let me know what is wrong with my approach? Do you have a good example in C# how to do this properly?

Jeff:

Note in the [node:10391] documentation that “This endpoint requires special permission to access.”.

We typically do not make the Firehose publicly available and instead recommend that you go through a [node:10382, hash=“Data”, title=“data reseller”].

However, you can still check out the [node:10390] endpoint.

I hope this helps.

if not through a reseller, what other possibility to access the firehose data stream?
