Firstly, i believe i am about to endevour into something new for me, so i thank you for any advice but also apologise for being a noob. I will try and choose my words carefully. I am having a meeting on this tomorrow so am afraid i do not have the upfront reading time needed to find previous posts, however if this has been answered a lot before, please simply tell me and i will endevour to find those posts. If there is an article on this, kindly forward me to it.
I believe what i need to build is a streaming client, as opposed to REST or Search. I would like to access specific tweets in relation to key words. For example to find all tweets related to an earthquake. The tweets should preferably come from ground zero (or close to) of the EQ, and not from people sending out heart felt sympathys from across the globe.
Question 1. WIll i need to built the streaming client from scratch? Or does Twitter offer these streaming clients.
Question 2. Is there any material on how to build this? I would like to customize some sort of alghorithm that does not store the junk in our data store. I would want for example tweets about a flooded city, not a kid complaining about being flooded with homework.
Thanks in advance
