Hi Enrico, You may want to look into using the Streaming API's "follow" feature: http://dev.twitter.com/pages/streaming_api_methods#follow as it's often a better fit than repeated polling to the Search API.
With the search API you could format your query as: "from:user1 OR from:user2 OR from:user3" Example: curl http://search.twitter.com/search.json?q=from:episod%20OR%20from:themattharris-- if you decide to use the Search API, be sure and use since_id in subsequent GETs. @episod <http://twitter.com/episod> - Taylor Singletary - Twitter Developer Advocate On Tue, Feb 22, 2011 at 9:35 AM, Enrico Miglino <enrico.migl...@gmail.com>wrote: > Hi, I'm creating an app based on QT that show with low frequency (12 times > per hour) the updated of a set of five different twitter users.
