Streaming API search term size exceeded 413



I am a researcher in a semantic computing research group and we are developing a Twitter application that requires key word list sizes that exceed 1000 keywords as the track parameter. Currently, only 400 words seem to be supported.

I read in numerous references that this track size can be increased for accounts. I could not find a tutorial on how to do this, other posts in this forum remained largely unanswered or are very old, and the twitter policy support terminated my support request and referred me back to this forum.

I hope that someone will shed some light to this issue for me.



Hi there,

The limit of 400 represents what we are generally able to offer via this API. The most natural upgrade path for those wanting to track a large number of topics is to use one of Gnip’s products.

Hope that helps!
