twitter_stream.statuses.filter(track='name') throwing error


Hi Friends, I am planning do analyze the market trend using information provided by twitter for my project…

I have successfully connected using OAuth using python. But, I could not retrieve data using the command…

rec = twitter_stream.statuses.filter(track=‘walmart’)

File “/usr/lib/python2.7/”, line 527, in http_error_default
raise HTTPError(req.get_full_url(), code, msg, hdrs, fp)
urllib2.HTTPError: HTTP Error 404: Not Found

Please help me…

Basically, I need to need to gather general information relevant to product/shop/people feedback (mostly not related to my status or timeline)… suggestion are always welcome …

Thanks in advance !!!


404 is File not found,
So it looks like it cant find the python library, or the url string being sent is incorrect, and so it can’t find it.


I crawled few websites, so it is not problem with python library. It is throwing error, When I am applying the filter condition.

Kindly provide me suggestion to find other people status (non-friends) and tweets…


Please help me out to resolve the probiem …


Have you looked into what your library is actually doing when trying to connect? I would check that the library is referencing API urls that exist. Using HTTPS, using /1.1/ streaming paths…


I found that status.filter is deprecated that using API 1 . Is there any other logic to retrieve general information movie reviews, product comments just by passing name?


There’s a v1.1 version of this same method. See [node:10389].
