I want to programmatically search for user accounts by people’s names. Basically the equivalent of typing a name into https://twitter.com/invitations/find_on_twitter.
It seems like GET users/search is the way to do this in the REST API. Is there an equivalent in the Streaming API, or should I use the REST API to do this?
(From my understanding of the documentation, I think the answer is no, and the Streaming API only returns Tweets, but I new to Twitter development so I want to be sure.)
