How can I download a CSV data file containing Sifter data?



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 purchased some data through Sifter, which was processed and loaded into a project in my DiscoverText account. I exported the dataset to a CSV file. How do I then download the CSV file to my computer?

Assuming you have a paid DiscoverText account, the exported Dataset is available through the left navigation pane.

  • On the left navigation, click on Analytics / Export.
  • Click on Exported Files.


Note: For more information, see the article on how to Export a dataset.

Note: Under Twitter's Terms of Service, exported files must be CSV files. Twitter data cannot be saved as XML or JSON, and is limited to no more than 50,000 tweets per day.
