    hi @Toki - first go to Connections -> Create Connection



    then select Twitter and give it a Connection Name:



    then click this button to request a token from Twitter:



    you will see this:



    Click "Request access token". Your browser should open and you will see this:



    Click "Authorize app". You will be presented with a code in massive font:



    Type this code into the window back in RapidMiner Studio and click "Complete":



    The token will be automatically placed in the appropriate box. Now click the "Test connection" button to ensure everything is ok:



    Click "Save". Your new connection will be saved as a file object in your repository:



    Now just connect this to any Twitter operator and you will be all set:

    Thank you very much for the reply. But that method returns me few Tweets. I would need to use more data to perform a more reliable analysis. I have the API key, the API key secret, and the access token of Dev Twitter but I don't know if I can connect with them through Rapidminer.

    If yes, how? Thanks a lot for your time

    Hello @Toki

    Yes all APIs have rate limits and Twitter is no exception. You almost certainly exceeded your daily limit. You can find all the rules for the Twitter API rate limits here: https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/basics/rate-limits
