Data restrictions

Particular Data Packs that you have added to your account may have restrictions on the Mention data that you can retrieve through the Consumer Research API. This can cause discrepancies between the data seen in the UI of the Consumer Research application and the data retrieved via the API. For specific information on the data packs that you have, please contact your account manager. The following sources are affected:


We are unable to provide the full metadata of Mentions from Twitter due to data compliance. Any Mention that is a Tweet will have the full text and some other metadata stripped out. If you wish to include the full metadata in your own application, then we recommend registering your application with Twitter, parsing the Twitter ID from the url field, and then using the Twitter API to retrieve it.

The metadata that we allow are as follows:

  • accountType
  • added
  • assignment
  • categories
  • categoryDetails
  • checked
  • city
  • cityCode
  • classifications
