    REST API - Help connecting to Twitter please?

    michael taylor

      Hi,  Over the xmas period (at work) I was really looking forward to trying out the new REST API connector and pulling some simple data from Twitter to be able to put into a Qlik dashboard to show management.   Unfortunately, I'm stuck with setting up the connection , so would really appreciate the support of this community .

       

      I thought I would start with one of the simple such as the trends/place API - https://api.twitter.com/1.1/trends/place.json

      When it goes through to the next screen I am only given the option of CSV , so when I try to change this to JSON I get an error saying invalid response type.  I've tried with and without id=1 (worldwide) and also adding it to the query parameters.

       

      Can anyone help and do you have a simple example I can try to replicate please?

       

      Thanks
