What constitutes a "use case"?

Hello, I am new to developing with Twitter APIs and have a question about the policy regarding “single use case”.

It seems that it’s not so uncommon to use multiple consumer/access tokens to consume larger volumes of data in a shorter period of time by balancing the requests across multiple tokens. The developer policy clearly states that is is forbidden for single use cases.

But what exactly would a single use case be?

For a specific example, say I want to collect tweets containing certain hash tags and/or phrases related to a specific but broad topic (say politics), and across multiple geographic locations. In this example, would this be a single use case, or would it be multiple use cases?
