No Twitter Firehose? No Problem.

Zuzanna Pasierbinska-Wilson

August 13th, 2015. The day that Twitter cut offs its firehose for DataSift. But just because we no longer have access to Twitter firehose, it doesn’t mean that you can’t process your Twitter data using our platform.

Enter Open Data Processing (ODP) for Twitter. A nifty piece of technology that allows you to process your Twitter data in the DataSift platform and get more value from your Tweets through – otherwise not available – advanced DataSift features.

And it’s a very simple 5 step process too:

  1. Obtain Twitter data from Gnip.
  2. Deploy open source data connector inside your own infrastructure.
  3. Data connector relays your Tweets to the DataSift platform.
  4. Rich, structured data is delivered to your application in real-time from DataSift.
  5. Be happy.

Over the last few months we’ve published a plethora of information on ODP for Twitter, so if you’re interested watch our webcast or read on:
