Years ago there was discussion on StackExchange of how to access various parts of the Twitter API via Mathematica. The proposed solutions seem to be obsolete, given changes in the API and/or Mathematica itself. Anyway, I get nothing but reams of errors when I try them. I would like to access the Twitter search API (https://dev.twitter.com/rest/public/search). Has anybody had any success reaching it from Mathematica 10?
The social media functions in Mathematica 10 make it easy to search for users with a specified string in their usernames
samplesearch = ServiceExecute[twitter, "SearchNetwork", "q" -> "puppy"]; vertices = VertexList[samplesearch]; Map[ServiceExecute[twitter, "UserData", "UserID" -> #] &, vertices]
But I see no similar way to search for specified text in Tweets.
