This is a simple use case of pushing Tweets to Kafka. We can do a lot more than that in NiFi. If you see the referenced article I can do Deep Learning on Tweet Images, Run Sentiment Analysis, Query the Tweets in Stream, Send messages to email / slack based on certain criteria and retweet automagically. All with No Code.

It is extremely easy to do this in NiFi.
