PowerTrack 2.0

As early adopter “original group” customers of Gnip, you know that when something new comes along, Texifter wants to be out front testing it. This means trying it out in house, as well as getting hard-nosed users to kick the tires via our free trial and continually spurring on our core academic customer group. As of today, the following Gnip 2.0 operators are enabled in our day-forward Twitter PowerTrack offer inside DiscoverText:

url:
(tokenized matching on url)
url_title: (tokenized match on expanded URL HTML Title)
url_description: (tokenized match on expanded URL HTML Description) 
bio: (a tokenized match on the contents of a user’s bio string)
bio_name: (a tokenized match on the contents of a user’s “Name” field)
place_country_code: see country_code
has:images: (returns all tweets that contain native images (e.g. pic.twitter.com))
has:videos: (returns all tweets that contain native videos (does not include vine, periscope))
is:quote (returns all quoted tweets)
 
Happy hunting folks. As usual, let us know how things go and what we can do to keep the service improving in 2016. I am personally excited to test out url_title and url_description (see examples of both below). Cashtags, emojis, and quoted tweet text filtering also look promising!
