Extracting twitter updates for a particular date through the API... how?!
I've scoured the API documentation, and I can't seem to figure this out (my hope is that I'm overlooking some simple, elegant solution). Is there a way, preferably using the REST API with PHP, to grab tweets based on a given date? I've read this question
, I know about TweetDumpr, and using "since" doesn't achieve what I want since it pulls in all the unneeded tweets AFTER the specified date as well.
This isn't just a personal project; if I can get this to work, it would be on a multi-user scale, where each user supplies his or her twitter credentials and can then see their tweets when they click on a specific day. Manually downloading a CSV file and parsing it each and every time would be a waste of server resources. It seems like the API would be robust enough to handle a "SELECT ALL TWEETS FROM $date". Am I living in some simplistic tweet fantasy world or what?!
Please hope me!
