Reddit Data Access

Social news and link sharing is one of the more unique ways that content is shared online. With a mix of original and found content, broken into hundreds of categories Reddit covers nearly everything. With streams to collect hot topics, new topics, or keyword search to find only relevant posts, our Reddit streams allow you to get the data you need. The Data Collector will allow you to connect to as many of the available Reddit streams as you'd like.

Data Collector

Connect to multiple public APIs simultaneously with a single connection to Gnip. You select the sources, we will collect the data, enrich it, and pass it along to you. Simplify your access and save on scarce engineering resources.


Format Normalization

Want to use just one parser to consume all of your data? Activity Streams format from Gnip enables you to consume all of your data in a single standardized format across all of our data sources.


Dedicated Support Team

We offer technical onboarding, technical documentation, code snippets and libraries on GitHub, and rapid support response during business hours with 24/7 emergency response to ensure your success.


Duplicate Exclusion

Gnip eliminates duplicates within each stream so you'll only receive each activity once. This is particularly useful for polling-based streams where the original source may deliver the same activity multiple times.


Optimized Polling

Tired of trying to keep up with changing rate limits, API latency, and other factors that limit the effectiveness of your polling? Gnip optimizes the polling for each API to ensure that you get the most data you can.


Choice of Protocols

Whether you choose to access your data in the publisher's original format or in Activity Streams format, Gnip can deliver your data to you in the protocol of your choice: HTTP GET, HTTP POST, or Streaming HTTP

Sources Similar to Reddit

People are sharing links so frequently in Tweets that we created a specific stream to capture all of this data. Our Link Stream can send you every Tweet that contains a link along with the associated metadata and expanded URL.

Both Reddit and bitly are places where people go to submit a URL, while the purpose may be different the result in terms of social data is the same; you can glean insight from the data and metrics of what people are sharing.

Delicious is a social bookmarking service. Users save URLs to then share with other people. On Reddit users submit URLs to share with other people. The resulting data is incredibly similar while the content is vastly different.

Success Stories

I absolutely love Gnip's API design. Very universal which saves hours of work on my side.

Addictive Mobility

Gnip allows businesses to focus on reaping social data insight, rather than tracking which services are hot, which are not, and which have changed their API policies.
