Search Twitter ----> Analyze Sentiment (AYLIEN) Result: "?" / Blank in Sentiment Results

Thank you for your assistance!


My process is simple:


Search Twitter:


query: NFL

result type: recent or popular

limit: 10 (just to make sure I have a test run)

language: en




Analyze Sentiment

Connection: AYLIEN

input attribute: TEXT

Sentiment Mode: tweet


This matches the same set up for a "hands on demo".  My results show "?" in each of the four sentiment columns (polarity and pol_confidence, subjective and sub_confidence).  


Any suggestions as to what I'm missing would be greatly appreciated!

    hi...yeah it's a rather small thing but try using "Text" rather than "TEXT" in your Aylien input attribute.

    Hi Scott,

    I am also getting the question marks in the polarity and subjectivity boxes, similar to Eric above.  The strange thing is earlier in the day, it worked fine.  However, now the question marks appear.  I've attached screenshots of setting up the process and then the results that appear.  Any advice?

    Did you go over your API limit? I think the free limit is 1,000 examples per day.

    It appears I did.  I was unaware that there was a limit.  Thanks for letting me know!  I was able to rerun the analysis tonight with no problem.
