I'm confused now. Which API should I use Streaming or Search?
What I want is to monitor Twitter and every time someone uses certain
words (maybe a total of about 20 words that I want to monitor
continuously), I want to show the tweet on the screen (or record it
into database)

Should I use search api or streaming api?
