MongoDB + Twitter Integrations

Syncing MongoDB with Twitter is currently on our roadmap. Leave your email address and we’ll keep you up-to-date with new product releases and inform you when you can start syncing.

About MongoDB

MongoDB is an open-source document-based database management tool that stores data in JSON-like formats. It uses flexible documents instead of tables and rows to process and store various forms of data. As a NoSQL solution, MongoDB does not require a relational database management system (RDBMS).

About Twitter

Twitter is a social networking platform that allows its users to send and read micro-blogs of up to 280-characters known as “tweets”. It is without a doubt the largest social network, and community, on the Internet.

Integration of MongoDB and Twitter


MongoDB is a NoSQL database that stores data in the form of JSON documents. It is an open source document-oriented database that can be used with any programming language and can be hosted on any web server. MongoDB was created by 10gen, which was later acquired by MongoDB Inc. MongoDB has many additional features like sharding (splitting the database into different parts. There are many other NoSQL databases, but MongoDB is the most popular one. There are also several other types of databases like SQL, Relational, Hadoop, etc.


Twitter is a social networking site where people share what they are doing with their friends and family. A person can share news, thoughts, pictures, videos, anything that he/she finds interesting. The user can also fplow other users to see what they are doing. The information shared on Twitter is called “tweets”. People can also use hashtags to find the tweets that contain certain keywords. For example if someone tweets #VikingsSaints his or her tweet will appear when someone else searches for #VikingsSaints . In this case, New Orleans Saints is the hashtag.

Integration of MongoDB and Twitter

To know more about how MongoDB works, we need to know how data is stored in it. We will stick to the basics for now. Data is stored in BSON format (binary JSON. It is very easy to access data from MongoDB using JavaScript. With JavaScript, we can communicate with MongoDB to retrieve information from a database and write information into a database. This makes it very easy to integrate Twitter with MongoDB. Twitter uses REST API which provides access to Twitter’s data through HTTP requests. So we need to create a script to connect with Twitter’s API and insert tweets into a database in MongoDB. This script can be run as a web service which will take tweets in JSON format and store them in MongoDB. Another thing we need to consider while storing tweets in MongoDB is the fact that we don’t want to store all the tweets made on Twitter because they are too much. So we need to write a script that filters out unwanted tweets and inserts only useful tweets into our database.

Benefits of Integration of MongoDB and Twitter

Since Twitter data is stored in MongoDB, it becomes easier to analyze data if something goes wrong with Twitter or some other problem occurs. Also, since it is easily accessible through JavaScript, it is very useful for analytics purpose.

In conclusion, I think that integrating Twitter with MongoDB will be very useful because it will make analyzing large amount of data easier and faster. These two technpogies work very well together and I am sure there are many more useful applications of this integration.
