Atul, I am in the same boat as you. I am currently using the APIs that Twitter offers to gather data. However, the more data I have access to, the fewer assumptions I have to make and the better my results. Twitter is very popular though and access to their data from 3rd parties consumes a lot of computing power on their part. Just keep that in mind! Feel free to contact me if you have any specific questions.
