"Historical Twitter data"
Relatively new to rapidminer but looking at it as a useful analysis tool for some research I am doing with colleagues. In particular we are looking to use historical Twitter data but the biggest stumbling block seems to be how to import the data into Rapidminer in an efficient manner - our current 'manual' system of creating an excel sheet with the data separated into categories (ID, date, location, retweets, tweet text etc.) is somewhat labour intensive.
I have looked online but not found anything that would work for us, yet! For example, http://vancouverdata.blogspot.co.uk/2010/11/text-analytics-with-rapidminer-loading.html - a brilliant set of tutorials but hasn't greatly helped in getting what we need at the start. ???
I have had a look at the Twitter connector - fantastic and the data is ready to go - but I'm not sure it works for historical data. We are looking at tweets from around 18 months ago and when I limit the results by date nothing comes back. Does anyone know if the Twitter connector would work here, and if so how? If not, can anyone point me in the right direction of how best to import historical Twitter data into rapid miner.
