What is Sifter?


The application "Sifter" provides search and retrieve access to every undeleted Tweet in the history of Twitter. Powered by Gnip.com, users can submit "Gnip Historical PowerTrack" estimate requests using a variety of query rules. When the query is done, sifter generates an email estimating the approximate number of tweets ("activities") that are responsive to the query and the cost to execute the data retrieval.

Once the Twitter data is licensed by Texifter, we store the Twitter data in a free trial Enterprise DiscoverText account where you can perform duplicate detection and advanced text analytics for 30 days. Search, filter, cluster, human code, and machine classify the data.

The Sifter application is designed and supported by Texifter. For more information, please contact info@texifter.com
