I’v spent a few days trying to understand how the twitter stream api works.
I’v written a full tutorial in the description and you should be able to setup everything in 5min and start following people and update the follower list.
My goal here was to simplify everything and to push out two main functions:
- show tweets and info (can be connected to a db)
- return users id (can be connected to a db to get the latest list of users to follow)

What needs to be done?
- Tests need to be written
- Disconnections need to be handled
-Queque needs to be added for tweets
-Filtration of tweets and retweets
