DataSift Websocket API - How To

The DataSift WebSocket API allows you to subscribe to DataSift streams using Websockets. WebSockets is a transmission protocol designed to permit bi-directional message passing over TCP connections using a single port. This enables browsers to connect to a WebSocket and retrieve curated DataSift content in near-realtime, without the technical boundaries of an HTTP Stream. DataSift provides real-time, human-generated data including social data, blogs, and news data.
