“We want developers and researchers to be able to study the conversation about COVID-19 in real-time. To do so, we’re releasing a streaming endpoint into Twitter Developer Labs to do just that,” Twitter said.

The COVID-19 streaming endpoint will return tweets based on the company’s internal COVID-19 tweet annotation and a set of defined parameters that the social media firm thinks deliver a comprehensive view of the conversation around this topic.
