I'm not sure this is possible, I'm trying to avoid a local data store to make it possible.


I would like to get a small bit of data from a tweet, but only the first tweet, ignoring that user from that point forward.

I can of course grab their username and disregard, but my list will grow quickly.

If my goal is to get stats on what time of day most people are joining Twitter and posting their first tweet, what would be the best place to query for that data?

I just need the time, and perhaps location fields. Would the search API be good? I hear about this firehose thing, but don't know what that is.

I'm thinking the public timeline may be best, but there may be way too much data for me to deal with.

Suggestions on methods appreciated.
