Template: "Run sentiment analysis on tweets and push results to a Power BI dataset"-problem


I have used the "Run sentiment analysis on tweets and push results to a Power BI dataset"-template to analyze tweets with the hashtag #AI and #ArtificialIntelligence, following this tutorial:

However, my flow is acting very weird. I get something like this:




The lines looks like they go BACK in time in many places. What is going on here?

Hi @ToveHjelm,


Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?

Do you monitor tweets with multiple hashtags using the "When a new tweet is posted" trigger within your flow?


I afraid that monitoring if a tweet is posted with multiple hashtags (#AI and #ArtificialIntelligence) is not supported in Twitter connector of Microsoft Flow currently, you could consider take a try to monitor if a tweet is posted with a single hashtag as below:2.JPG



If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

Hello and thank you for your answer,

In the flow for the previous image I used two hashtags, but I created a new project with only the hashtag #AI, that resulted in a similar problem:




I believe however that I have identified the problem. I think that #AI produces too many tweets for the flow to handle. Here is a view of my runs:



As you can see the fourth run (counting from the top) starts before the third run, but takes 7 seconds longer. So the processing of this tweet is done after the one that comes after, even though it was posted earlier. I think this is why I get the weird line charts. Is there a way of filtering the number of tweets (so that you only get for example one tweet a second)?
