Thanks man, That is exactly what I am looking for :D

Thanks a lot man!!! This is wht I want XD

Yes, thanks a lot!

Wow very cool! Thanks a ton!

Very handy, thanks for sharing!

I notice the example Tweet id is different from the id_str field, developers take a look at:
https://dev.twitter.com/overview/api/twitter-ids-json-and-snowflake

thankz a lot

Thanks, I haven't found any output examples or documentation on the official Twitter Public Streaming API itself

great stuff, thanks
