twitter.retweet.user.lang

The language a Retweeting user selected from the drop-down list on their Settings page.

Note that the value may be misleading. For example, a user might select French as their mother tongue but compose their Tweets in English. DataSift offers an augmentation called Language which determines the language based on a statistical analysis of 3-letter groups of characters.

The drop-down list shows the full name of the language (English, French, German, and so on) but the twitter.user.lang target contains the two-character code for the language.

Take a look at the list of languages that Twitter supports.

Examples

  1. Filter for Retweets from authors who specify French as their preferred language:

    twitter.retweet.user.lang == "fr"

  2. Filter for Retweets from authors who specify French as their preferred language but Tweet in English:

    twitter.retweet.user.lang == "fr"
    and language.tag == "en"
