I am brand new to this and what I am trying to do is run a promotion with a hashtag where I follow the hashtag and when people mention certain keywords, a tally is created and shown so users can see the results live
Use the Streaming API with a filter
track keyword matching your hashtag / keywords. Then in your code, count the Tweets as they come in.
thank you so much…I apologize for my ignorance as I am brand new to this. When you say in my code, count the tweets as they come in, how do I do that and where would the counts show up? If you could provide me a snippet I can probably modify it.
Let’s say I am tracking #craftbeer
and I want to count mentions of sierra nevada , lagunitas , Ballast Point and IPA but does not double count if they use a brewer and IPA in the same tweet
I would like a counter that tallies the mentions… could you send me a snippet that does that and then I can modify from there?
I can save you doing some of the work as I’ve actually built what you’re talking about!
I’d love your feedback, just login with your existing Twitter account, create your Campaign and go!

If you have any questions then let me know.
@SocialOpinions, what about the 1% limit rule, does it apply to your solution? Is there a solution that can capture all tweets, provided that traffic volume is low?
I guess my question is related to the problem reported in this topic:
