Accessing and using Twitter 'Firehose' extracts

Mar 24, 2016 at 3:51 PM
Has anybody any experience of accessing Twitter datasets from one of the big 'firehose' providers and using them with NodeXL?

I have a client who forgot to let anybody know they were running a social media experiment and so did not set themselves up to capture the data as they went along (7 day twitter search API limitations). I said I would ask round to see if anyone had ever accessed a dataset from one of the firehose providers and subsequently if they had, how they brought it into NodeXL.

Any suggestions?

Thank you for the interest in NodeXL!

We have some command line tools that can convert the output of most of the social media data archive services.

These tools are not yet ready for general users, but we can do some special request conversions.

We do plan these tools as future extensions to NodeXL Pro.

Please email me to set up a discussion.
