Does interaction.sample apply to the firehose or your stream?
I am a bit confused about how interaction.sample works. If I have interaction.sample < 5, will that sample 5% of tweets from the Twitter firehose before they are matched by a stream, or 5% of the tweets that have matched the stream?
The documentation page for interaction.sample states the following:
So, I'm guessing it's sampling from the full firehose before applying the stream filter, but I want to be sure I understand correctly.
