I have a script which is using the search API to query for a couple hash tags 2 times an hour. Since the hash tags are not exceptionally active, this is enough to cover all the tweets for this tag without issue.
I have it writing to a database, and thinking to stop from seeing duplicates, I made the tweet ID as given by twitter a unique ID. Unfortunately, it seems twitter renumbers their tweets? I have the same tweet by the same author over and over again. Is there a useful way to identify tweets without duplicates? Preferably without using the actual text of the tweet... -- Twitter developer documentation and resources: http://dev.twitter.com/doc API updates via Twitter: http://twitter.com/twitterapi Issues/Enhancements Tracker: http://code.google.com/p/twitter-api/issues/list Change your membership to this group: http://groups.google.com/group/twitter-development-talk
