Current version of Twitter Streaming Node (4.3.0.v202011191704) does not work due a problem with the twitter4j initialization.
The first console message is:
Execute failed: class twitter4j.TwitterStreamImpl cannot access its superclass twitter4j.TwitterBaseImpl
and then, all the subsequent tries yield the error text:
Execute failed: Could not initialize class twitter4j.TwitterStreamFactory
To be able to reproduce simply use a Twitter API Connector with your dev credentials and a Twitter Streaming with any keyword. I have tested both read-only and read-write apps (with a free dev account).
I am using KNIME 4.3.0 on Windows 10 64 bit. The installed extension for Twitter is:
I forgot to say that this problem is the same that the one showing in the last comment of this topic:
I think the original problem with that node got fixed, but now it has reappeared some months ago. It’s strange that nobody has reported this before. Maybe the node is not being used at all, or we (the original poster and me) have some sort of error in the KNIME installation.
