Microsoft just made streaming datasets a whole lot easier in Power BI.  For the past year, users have been building real-time dashboards with streaming datasets via the REST API endpoint.  Now, with the Power BI connector for Microsoft Flow, data rows can be pushed automatically without writing any code, thanks to hundreds of pre-written Flows.  What does this mean for you?  It means you can add real-time weather data, Twitter sentiments, and other triggers, directly to your dashboards.  Learn more about this slick feature here, including a great test run of the Twitter sentiment Flow!
