I have been reading the API docs but I am a bit confused between the different types of APIs: the ones that are deprecated / going to be deprecated and the new ones.
What I am looking to achieve is simple: I want to get notifications of the new tweets from a protected twitter account that I follow.
This is for personal use only. This is not to develop an app to be used by everybody.
From what I understand, I cannot use the Streaming endpoint (
statuses/filter) because it does not support protected accounts.
So I feel that the only solution is to pull
Is that correct?
Can someone confirm there is not a more efficient way to do this?
