Do I need two accounts, one for Sifter and another for DiscoverText?


Do I need two accounts, one for Sifter and another for DiscoverText?

The answer, unfortunately, is yes. We are moving to a single sign on model, but for now we ask that you create free accounts on both systems. The good news is that neither registration process will ask you for a credit card and you can do a lot with our free trial.

Register for Sifter  |  Request a 30-day Free Trial of DiscoverText

Estimates are free on Sifter. You can create 3 per day. Any data you pay to access will be stored in your DiscoverText account. They remain separate systems with separate logins, for now. 

Any Sifter purchase over $50 includes 14 days of Enterprise DiscoverText access. This enables up to three users to collaborate on the dataset. If you spend more than $500, we will provide the software free for 30 days for up to five users. All purchases over $1,500 come with 60 days of gratis access to the full suite of DiscoverText for up to 10 users.
There is no free historical Twitter data. However, if you take the free 3-day trial of DiscoverText, there are two types of day-forward Twitter data that are free:
  1. Search API - You can learn more about that option in this video: This will let you collect up to 5,000 Tweets to test out our system.
  2. Gnip PowerTrack 2.0 -  There are a number of videos about Gnip Twitter data. This is premium pay as you go data and we provide free access to the PowerTrack filters and 500 free Tweet credits. Additional credits cost $3/10,000. This is incredibly rich data by comparison to the Search API.
We advise people to experiment with the Gnip PowerTrack in DiscoverText before making a Sifter purchase. Refining your rules through trial and error is a very useful step.
