Sifter FAQ

This page has information about using Sifter to license data from the complete, undeleted history of Twitter. Many first time Sifter users assume they are buying direct access to the data. In fact, Sifter is a tool that allows you to license the data for analysis on DiscoverText in compliance with the Twitter Terms of Service. After a Sifter user accepts an estimate, we send a PayPal invoice so you can complete the license transaction using a credit card. Once the transaction is complete, we start the download from Twitter to your DiscoverText account.
