In the previous month, Pushshift.io has served over 325 million API requests and has provided over 100 terabytes of bandwidth for people looking to use social media data for their projects. Pushshift is continuing to work hard to expand the API by offering new features including bot detection and other exciting features that will help aid data scientists and researchers.
