StackOverflow is a question and answer site for everything about programming. Question and answer data is great for analyzing because it shows need, opinion, problems, and solutions. With our Stack Overflow streams you can get a full firehose of the answers, or you can search by keywords for both questions and answers about a specific topic. Using our Data Collector you can get both streams in a normalized format.

Gnip provides managed access to StackOverflow’s public API via the Data Collector. See below for details on the specific type of access supported, and sample payloads.
