Setting up a Twitter User Stream

Use this filter to collect all Tweets sent from a set of predefined Twitter accounts, Retweets of their tweets or Replies sent to them. 

All Twitter Filters collect Content & Stats.

Bear in mind

The use of Twitter Filters in Flows consumes your Monthly Quota of Tweets, which you can check in your Company UsageRemember, you can use the Discover Content section for quick searches about what is happening in a big volume conversation or trending topics.


(1) The recommended use case for this filter is collecting tweets sent only by a group or predefined group, i.e. celebrities or participants of a TV show, journalists working for a media group, players of a team, etc. 

(2) In all these cases, Flowics will collect tweets sent by these accounts, which together with some keyword filtering would provide a good source for curated tweets about a specific event.

(3) The filter definition also allows excluding ReTweets. 

(4) Enable Sampling to collect only a percentage of the tweets so that big-volume queries can be managed easier.
