FIne tune the search api for my requirements



I am currently using the python twitter api( tweepy) and collecting tweets for a specific company using the search api.

I can mention the data parameters and search keyword. But i would like to fine tune it further if its possible. I would like to have lets say 100 tweets per hour for the entire day for any keyword.

Is that possible. I would love not to collect the entire tweet available for 24 hrs and then filter.

Any help is appreciated.
