Examples

  1. Filter for content from Twitter and YouTube that mentions "apple":

    interaction.type contains_any "Twitter, YouTube"
    and interaction.content contains "apple"

  2. Filter for content from Twitter only:

    interaction.type == "twitter" and
    interaction.sample < 2

    To make sure that this filter runs correctly, go to the Data Sources page and make sure that Twitter is activated. Activating Twitter automatically de-activates your Demographics feed so, be careful. Do not activate Twitter without first checking whether you have any Demographics streams running.

    Note that we are sampling just 2 percent of the feed to reduce costs and make sure we do not exceed our Twitter rate limit.
