This is my first post on the forms so please bare with and let me know if this needs to move to a different location.
I’m trying to get a callback when new tweets mentioning a given hashtag are posted.
I had a quick look at the API and did a few tests with the console and as far as I understood I can use the Search API to get the most recent recents tweets for a hashtag. I can get the results I’m looking but not live and I’m not sure polling is the best way to do this.
Is there any way to setup a callback from twitter to a script for a given hashtag ?
If not, that’s the best way to handle this ?
P.S. The advanced search options are really cool
