I'm presently migrating some of my code base to the Streaming API, and I have a question regarding the filter/track syntax.
Currently I run multiple searches on frequencies from 1 minute to 1 hour (based on output volume). Let's say for example the following 2 searches. "happy OR sad" and ":) OR :(" http://search.twitter.com/search?q=happy+OR+sad http://search.twitter.com/search?q=%3A%29+OR+%3A%28 With the streaming API filter and only one connection, it seems my only option is to combine these in to one filter i.e. "track=happy,sad,:),:(" I'm then required to do my own parsing to determine the actual source of the result. Hopefully I'm missing something here and I can separate track input and better identify the right result for the right search. Any help appreciated. Ronald
