If possible, what is the best approach to getting a total count of a specific hashtag used. I'm looking to build an app leveraging the API that helps me get to this data. I've seen the search api through "search.twitter.com" but it filters users out it appears. It doesn't look I can get to this total through the streaming API or from what I've seen. I appreciate any help. Thanks.
