Interested in using Twitter data / tweets in a research project but not quite sure how to use the API interface? Or maybe you're unwilling/unable to pay the subscription fees for the Premium and Enterprise APIs? You can get up to 5,000 tweets a month through the sandbox options of the APIs. This webinar shows you how to do it.

Note: In an earlier webinar, we showed you the basics of using Twitter's sandbox API options. This 'Part 2' webinar builds on the concepts introduced in the earlier session. To watch a recording of that Part 1 introductory session, click here.


This is an online webinar. Connection instructions will be emailed to all registrants.
