ToS regarding the tracking of Retweets


#1

I’m creating an application in order to study Retweet-behavior. To do this I’m using the streaming api in order to capture all retweets (the originals being posted by my application). Tracking the deletion of Retweets would be part of this.

Am I breaking the ToS by saving these Retweets (and tracking deletion time)? None of the data would be publicly available and would be anonymized before publication.

Hi @DenEwout, Are you tracking deleted tweets or retweets that have been un-retweeted? Will you please create a ticket under the “I have an API policy question not covered by these points” option at https://support.twitter.com/forms/platform and we will discuss your app in more detail. Feel free to mention my name and I will follow up personally.
