Twitter's estimation of the importance of a Tweet. This target can take these values:

  • none
  • low
  • medium
  • high (right now, this one's reserved by Twitter for future use)

The medium and high entries roughly correlate to the "Top Tweets" results for searches on

Here's how it works. Twitter assigns a filter level to each Tweet. For example, I might write a Tweet that Twitter decides to mark as "low", which means that they don't see it as particularly significant. A moment later, you write a Tweet and they mark it as "medium" which is the highest level currently possible.

This DataSift filter will deliver both of our Tweets:

twitter.filter_level in "low, medium"

While this one will find yours but not mine:

twitter.filter_level == "medium"


  1. Filter for Tweets that have their filter level set to "medium":

twitter.filter_level == "medium"
