I have some search API code that works, but seems way too slow. I am hoping I can get some pointers and best-practices advice.
I am using an RSS news headline feed at my organization (a university) and only posting Tweets for new headlines. I iterate through the headlines and search for Tweets from our own account. I am searching for the title of the article, the bit.ly URL, and the combination of the title + bit.ly URL. If none of these three searches returns a result, I go ahead and post a Tweet. I haven't added date filters, yet. I plan to do that next to help speed things up. Is there any way to post a primary key ID or some other unique ID as some sort of metadata for a Tweet, and simply search for the primary key / unique ID?
