Twitter Retweet Search

StreamableKNIME Twitter API Nodes version 4.3.0.v202011191704 by KNIME AG, Zurich, Switzerland

Given a tweet ID, this node searches for corresponding retweets or IDs of retweeter.

Twitter API accepts a determined amount of requests in a 15 minute windows. For more details see API Rate Limits and Rate Limits: Chart . The amount of request is limited to 15 (user authentication) or 60 (application authentication), respectively. See GET statuses/retweets/:id and GET statuses/retweeters/ids .

Please note that Twitter's search service and, by extension, the Search API is not meant to be an exhaustive source of retweets or retweeter IDs. Not all retweets and retweeter IDs will be indexed or made available via the search interface.


The column containing tweet IDs.
retweets or retweeter IDs
Choose you want to search for: retweets or IDs of retweeter.
number of retries
Sometimes Twitter returns a wrong waiting time until the 15 minute time window is reached; therefore the amount of requests is not fully reseted. In this case the waiting time is multiplied by the number of retries. If the number of retries, i.e. the multiplied waiting time, is not sufficient to reset the amount of requests, the execution will be canceled.
return intermediate results
If the number of retries is not sufficient to reset the amount of requests (and therefore the execution is canceled), the results, which were retrieved until this point in time, will be shown in output table.
Provided information about a retweet. Only available when searching for retweets.
