When can I expect to receive Sifter data paid for via PayPal?



Unfortunately, the Sifter service and website has been decommissioned as of September 30, 2018. Thanks to our 6,970 users who created 16,128 free estimates from the complete, undeleted history of Twitter between 1/14/2014 and 9/29/2018.

Please contact Twitter for approval of future academic or commercial use cases. If you can get an approved use case from Twitter, we can still help you work with the data inside DiscoverText.

@DiscoverText remains open and is still the top-ranked text analysis platform on the Internet.

All paid jobs prior to the decommissioning will still be honored.


I received an estimate for Sifter data and intended to pay for it through PayPal. I haven’t received any data yet. When can I expect to receive the data?

When the data is ready then we will put it in your DiscoverText account. We generally expect the data to get loaded into the account within 24 hours - in many cases, much less.

Please be sure you have clicked on the PayPal link in the estimate email you received to complete the payment transaction. The estimate will say, “Awaiting Acceptance” until you do this.

When the PayPal link is not clicked then it requires a bit of manual intervention on our end to start the processing.

  • If you already have a DiscoverText account, please send us an email with the username and/or email address that the data is associated with, and then we can load the data there.
  • If you do not already have a DiscoverText account, then please create an account on DiscoverText (via https://discovertext.com/start-a-free-trial/ ). See the 3-day free trial article for more information.
