I have been trying a certain algorithm but havent succeeded and
getting a http 403 response.
The algorithm is something like set a date say 2nd June to 4th June
with a string search query.
Call the search method and consume the first 1500 results , as the
tweets have status ids and you can limit the searches with the maxid
and sinceid parameter, get the sinceid from result and set it as the
maxid for the preceding 1500 tweets in time and so on.
Is this approach gonna work.
