Sentimonitor possesses a fairly extensive set of filters. While the most common filters are available to access directly on the left of the screen, by clicking Advanced Filters just above the Refresh button you can find the complete list of filters.
The following describes the filters available in this option.
Filter by language: allows you to filter posts that are marked with a certain language. For example, it is possible to show only the posts made in English and to hide those made in Portuguese.
Authors Details: allows the selection of specific criteria in relation to the authors:
By selecting Only Verified Authors, you can see the posts from authors with verified accounts only.
By selecting Only Authors with Personal Site, you can see only the posts from authors who have a personal site added to their profile (in general, this is either a personal website, blog or other social media profile).
Through the option Personal URL it is possible to filter only the authors that have certain words in the URL of their personal site. For example, it’s possible to filter only the Twitter users that have their blog linked to their profile, by entering
Annotations on Authors’ profiles: Allows you to search for customised annotations that can be made on authors (see “Edit Author”, 7. Revision of Posts and Authors). Upon using this filter, only the posts from author whose annotations match the criteria entered will be shown. If more than one annotation is searched for, all the annotations must match the filter to be shown. For example, if you add annotations about the job and education of the authors, you will be able to search for people with higher education in London by adding two filters: one with the title
Educationand the annotation
Higher, and the other with the title
Cityand the annotation
Revision type: Allows you to select posts which weren’t revised or that were were revised automatically, semi-automatically or manually (the process of revision will be detailed ahead, in this manual).
