Hi I have just launched my first twitter application. Basically: -People send a tweet that mentions @appName (authorizing not needed) -App checks for new @appName mentions *from time to time*, and process them.
There is a max mentions limit (200) that can be retrieved at a time via API. I know I'm not hitting this limit soon with the app but I want to code a scalable method fo get mentions. Unfortunaltely we do not have the option to get mentions in the 'oldest first' order. This causes a little tricky code for getting mentions in chunks and not missing older tweets. (Suppose you had 200+ mentions since last check). For testing I limit, 'max mentions to get at a time' to 10, in my code and it seems to be working. I won't go into more details... -I would like to know if any of you have coded something similar? -Would love to see an alternative, as I'm not happy with my code! -Is there an API method I could use for this purpose, which would make things easier?
