Research on hashtags



My name is Kaitlyn Frische and I am currently a student at DePauw University. I want to conduct an analysis of tweets that are specifically tagged with the hashtag #nohomo … I want to collect a sample over a one to two-hour period on a certain day.

How, using one of the API systems, would I collect this data?

I am NO computer genius, so simple terms and steps would really help me.
