Connecting to Twitter Search API without Twitter Search Tool

Meteor

The Twitter search tool is now a deprecated tool and I cannot use it on my version of Alteryx.

 

Therefore, I want to use the Download tool to connect. Ive reviewed the Developer Guidance on Twitter but am no closer to understanding how it works. 

 

Has anyone downloaded data from the Search API using the download tool in Alteryx ? If so how would I approach this, how would I configure the API Call?

 

Thanks

Hi!

 

I've built a couple of twitter API macros myself so know some detail on this, but essentially I ripped the heart out of the now depreciated twitter search tool, so this will provide you with a good base.

One of my colleagues has also done something similar recently, @Natasha can you help here?

Hi Ben, 

 

Thanks for getting in touch. 

 

Unfortunately my version of Alteryx isnt the same as yours and so I cant download this macro. I have 11.5.1, any other ideas?

You should still be able to download it.

You can then edit teach of the assets to downgrade the workflow to your version, as in this blog..
