News and Social Data
If you have a Twitter account, with Datafeed Toolbox™, you can retrieve historical Tweets and other Twitter data. For Twitter credentials, log in to your Twitter account and see Create an application. Create a Twitter connection object and search for historical Tweets using the
search function. Use the
postdata functions to retrieve other Twitter data, Tweet, and access the Twitter REST API GET and POST endpoints.
Determine the amount of positive and negative sentiment among retrieved Tweets using a glossary of keywords.
Post Tweets based on the number of followers for a specified account.
