Execute MySQL queries against live Twitter data from MySQL Workbench.

You can use the SQL Gateway from the ODBC Driver for Twitter to query Twitter data through a MySQL interface. Follow the procedure below to start the MySQL remoting service of the SQL Gateway and work with live Twitter data in MySQL Workbench.

Connect to Twitter Data

If you have not already done so, provide values for the required connection properties in the data source name (DSN). You can use the built-in Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to configure the DSN. This is also the last step of the driver installation. See the "Getting Started" chapter in the help documentation for a guide to using the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure a DSN.
