Get tweets instantly via API


#1

Hello,
I need to get tweets from a list of Twitter users right after they actually tweet something. Is that doable via API and what method should I use?

Thanks in advance

The REST API isn’t designed for low-latency use cases - you’re looking for the Streaming API. Take a look at https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/tweets/filter-realtime/overview for information on that.
