nodejs twit how do you follow a users LIVE twitter stream

0 votes

I'm using twit (https://www.npmjs.com/package/twit) to stream live tweets from particular twitter users.

I have the following code:

var stream = T.stream('statuses/filter', { follow: ['nodejs'] })

stream.on('tweet', function (tweet) {
    console.log(tweet.text)
})

However, it generates the following error:

Error: Bad Twitter streaming request: 406

Simply tracking terms in a tweet will suffice; for example, the following code will suffice.

var stream = T.stream('statuses/filter', { track: ['apples'] })

stream.on('tweet', function (tweet) {
    console.log(tweet.text)
})

According to Twitter's guidelines, I should be able to just replace track with follow.

In the following argument, you must use the numeric user ID rather than the screen name. The users/show endpoint can be used to get the user ID for a specific screen name.
