this is my first post on this forum.
I’m using TAGS recently. It’s fantastic!
I’ve found this guide online but this is for a 3.0 version. I cant get data about favorites and retweets of all the tweet.
How can I set this feature?

Hi Pivita – welcome 😉 From the TAGS menu there should be options for Add Summary and Add Dashboard. Using these adds sheets with info about the archive.October 31, 2014 at 7:53 am #168
Hi, thanks for the answer.
I’m using dashboard and summary for the aggregate data yet.
I’d like to know how many favorites and retweets has each tweet and, if possible, geolocation coordinates.
Thank you so much

Hi – favourites and retweets can be recorded by adding
rewteet_countas column names to the archive sheet (this is not retrospective, only new data will include this). What you do with this data is up to your spreadsheet ninja skills, there’s nothing in tags which will summaries itNovember 2, 2014 at 8:48 am #174
Thank you very much!
Is there any key to geolocation data recording?

EDIT: I don’t know why, TAGS don’t calculate “favorite_count” (even favOurite_count and favorites/favourites_count) but found all the retweets simple writing retweet_count.November 4, 2014 at 9:21 am #178
sorry favourite count doesn’t appear to be available in the data from Twitter
geocoding data is possible a number of ways but be aware that Twitter terms of service apply https://dev.twitter.com/overview/terms/agreementJanuary 3, 2015 at 3:20 pm #268hu2015Participant
What about pre filtering? For hash tags I want only collect original tweets and not retweets is that possible? And if so how? Thanks.January 4, 2015 at 4:49 pm #269
There isn’t a native feature in the public search api to do this. The best you can do is include -RT in your keyword search e.g. ‘kittens AND -RT’ (without quotes). Retweets get prefixed with RT in the search api even if you just click a retweet button. The -RT removes everything that includes ‘RT’ in the tweet so is not 100% accurate.February 25, 2015 at 8:23 am #356BarriParticipant

With the option geo_coordinates only see a few.

See II.C on Geographic Data in https://dev.twitter.com/overview/terms/agreement (I’m not entirely sure what it means and what the implications are. ‘Content’ is defined as:
Content ‒ Tweets, Tweet IDs, Twitter end user profile information, and any other data and information made available to you through the Twitter API or by any other means authorized by Twitter, and any copies and derivative works thereof.

Neither favorite_count and favourites_count returns any data when adding a column with the names. Is this normal now?July 17, 2018 at 10:38 pm #1235
Unfortunately Twitter removed favourites_count and retweets_count from the search resultsOctober 2, 2018 at 1:24 pm #1283nesfernandezParticipant
Hi Martin!!!! my name is Nestor and im writing you from Argentina. Your work is a great help for us. I have tried the “twitter Archiver” complement and it returns the favourites and retweets count. May be thers a solution for the count due to your post “Unfortunately Twitter removed favourites_count and retweets_count from the search results”October 2, 2018 at 7:22 pm #1284
Hi Nestor – hmm either I misdiagnosed or the data is back in the search results. If you add columns with the names
retweet_countin the Archive sheet when the script runs data will be populated in these columns. Thanks for the prod 🙂
