How to get live twitter data in Power Bi

Hi All,

I have a requirement to show live twitter data in Power BI. And then do some sentiment analysis on top of that.

 

Need your input to explore more on this. Is there any straight forward way to do that. Or any license needed.

 

Any blog would be really helpful.

 

Regards,

Akash

Hi @akj2784,

 

Maybe I misundersand your requirement before.

 

It seems that you want to create a streaming dataset for twitter data in Power BI Service.

Hi @akj2784,

 

You may could use web data source to call Twitter API and do the data cleaning in Query Editor. Available retrieved data are also depends on the Twitter API.

 

For reference, you could have a good look at the blog: Get Data from Twitter API with Power Query.

 

In addition, you could refer to this similar thread.

Re: How to get live twitter data in Power Bi

I have read those blogs but it does not talk about live streaming of the data. 

However I got a blog which uses Microsoft Flow to live stream the data from twitter.

Re: How to get live twitter data in Power Bi

Thank you. I already read that.

Somehow when I tweet something, it doesnt automatically reflect in Power BI Dashboard. 

But when I refresh the page, it comes up.

 

Ideally it should automatically show in the dashboard as soon as the new tweets related to the hashtag comes up. I have pinned the report to dashboard but still not showing. And microsoft flow also ran successfully.

Hi @akj2784

 

From that blog, we could push data to Power BI streaming datasets without writing any code using Microsoft Flow.

 

If you have solved your problem, please accept the replies making sense as solution to your question so that people who may have the same question can get the solution directly.
