A frequent request from our customers has been the ability to open multiple connections to Premium Twitter Feeds on their Gnip data collectors. Our customers have asked and we have delivered!
While multiple connections to standard data feeds have been available for quite some time, we have only allowed one connection to our Premium Twitter Feeds. Beginning today you will be able to open multiple mirrored connections to Power Track, Decahose, Halfhose, and all of our other Premium Twitter Feeds. This feature will be helpful when testing connections to your Gnip data collector in different environments (such as staging or review) without having an impact on your production connection.
You may be saying “Sounds great Gnip, but will I be charged the standard Twitter licensing fee for the same tweet delivered across multiple connections?”. The answer is no! You will pay a small flat fee per month for each additional connection. If you’re interested in adding Multiple Connections to your Premium Twitter Feed please Contact Us.
