are there sample Tweet data sets that can be used and shared publicly without violating the Twitter terms and policies?
I am starting work on an open source Twitter library. The code will of course live in a public (Github) repo. In order to run automatic test in my CI routines a sample Tweet data set would be needed. It is of course easy to assemble a test data set, but as far as I understand the Twitter API terms, sharing such a data set in a public repo would violate the Developer terms.
If I only include the Tweet IDs in my test data I would comply with the Twitter terms but would have to rehydrate those Tweets for every build and test execution. Moreover, since some Tweets may become unavailable over time my test data would change and tests may fail due to this.
I am sure that this has been encountered before by other open source projects working with the Twitter API, but I haven’t been able to find any efficient and compliant solution for our project.
Hence, I wonder 1) how this has been approached by others in the community and 2) if there are stable, reusable Tweet data sets for testing that can be shared in an open source project in compliance with the Twitter terms?
Thanks in advance for any feedback.
