I’m using Get statuses/user_timeline to obtain tweets for a single user for the past month or so. This works great. However, I need to extend this to obtain tweets for a series of theoretically up to 100 users for the past month. I’m wondering what the best way to do this is? And to add more complexity to this, they need to be georefenced tweets (contain coordinates) so I can place them on a map. Is there a better REST request for this purpose? Or is it a matter of sending multiple requests using Get Statuses/User_timeline, one per user (seems time consuming and I’ll quickly hit my Rate Limit).
I tried mucking around with the Search API but it seems very inconsistent in the data it brings back, and it seems to me that it only pulls back tweets from the past week or so only???
