Simple check for any new tweets to account ===> activate animation in TouchDesigner

Hello! First time twitter developer here (please pardon my lack of experience)

I’m interested in creating a project in TouchDesigner that checks a Twitter account for new tweets.
In essence, I’d like an animation to trigger anytime the stream notices a new tweet from that account.

I see a lot of functionality for checking new favorited tweets, new followers, but I’m not sure how to best check for a simple, new tweet.

Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thank you
