links.age

Please note: we are deprecating this target.
It will continue to compile but it will not match any data.

The number of seconds since a particular link was created in our database. As soon as we see an author use a new link, we aggregate it. In other words, this target indicates the first time we saw a link in the Twitter Firehose.

This information is useful, for example, when you write filters that look for new links only.

Examples

  1. Filter for posts containing links that have been added to our database within the past 100 seconds:

links.age < 100
and interaction.sample < 5
