Twitter Search Node


congratulation to the developers of Knime Software, it is the best tool integrating global stadistics from diferents sources. I'm loving it. Now,  I am using Twitter Search node and I have a question. Results are based on three altertatives: the most popular tweets, the most recent ones or a mixture of both. What is the meaning of every alternative? What is the criteria to select tweet with each alternative?

Best regards,

PD. Is there a general document Twitter API in Knime



the Twitter search options correspond to the options provided by Twitter's search API. Here is the official documentation:

Specifies what type of search results you would prefer to receive. The current default is “mixed.” Valid values include:
  * mixed: Include both popular and real time results in the response.
  * recent: return only the most recent results in the response
  * popular: return only the most popular results in the response.


I unfortunatly can't tell you what Twitter's exact definition of recent or popular is, I don't know of a document that explains this in more detail.
