Index version

The index_version column in the table above indicates the minimum index_version an alert must have for the filter property to be available. The index version of an alter is available in its index_version attribute.

Pagination

Retrieving older mentions should be done by following the _links.more attribute in the result.

Pulling for new mentions should be done by following the _links.pull attribute in the result. Also consider using the streaming API.

Q parameter

q

The q parameter allows to filter mentions by keyword, or to combine filters that are not otherwise combinable in the query string.

Only accounts with search access can use this parameter.

Example:

source:(facebook OR twitter) in:(inbox OR archive) is:favorite tone:(neutral OR positive) language:en published_at:[2015-12-01 TO 2015-12-31]
