Is it legal to fetch/store/analyze trends for a city retrieved using twitter API?


#1

I am writing an application, where I intend to profile trending topics for my city over a duration of one month. I intend to use Twitter API to fetch the trending topics of my city everyday.

However, in API-terms (https://dev.twitter.com/terms/api-terms) point 4.E under “I. Twitter Content” states that “use or access the Twitter API to aggregate, cache (except as part of a Tweet), or store place and other geographic location information contained in Twitter”

So, I want to know that isit be legal to use Twitter API to fetch the Twitter trends daily and provide analysis for a month’s duration for a particular city ?
