How are Twitter tweets ordered in buckets or dataset views? Can I change the sort order?

Follow

As I view my data, how are Twitter tweets ordered in buckets or dataset views? Is there any way to change the sort order?

You have the option to arrange tweets chronologically when you set up a dataset; just check the appropriate checkbox. 

If you do set the checkbox, the tweets will be arranged in the order that Twitter provides them.

In an Archive listing view: The order is reverse chronological from most recent (newest) to least recent (oldest).

In a Bucket or Dataset view: The tweets are in the order in which you've added the items to the bucket. In the case of creating a dataset from a full archive (assuming the checkbox is not checked) the data items should be in reverse chronological order from most recent (newest) to least recent (oldest).
