DataSift has the ability to enable any user to build upon a stream that you or another user has created.  The concept is pretty simple, each stream has a unique identifier which you will find when you select the stream.  In order to find the identity of the stream click on Stream Identity, and copy it! Then start creating your new stream definition!  This short video shows you the syntax and where to find the useful things that you might be looking for to create complex streams.

We also did a little video to take you through our support site so that you can find all the documentation, see where bug reports go and also where your questions get answered and feedback can be found.
