This blog post will discuss various techniques to use Twitter’s search REST API most effectively, given the constraints and limits of the said API. I’ll be using python for demonstration, but any native API which supports the Twitter REST API will do.
If you work with Computer or Network Security, then terms like CVE, CPE, CWE, CCE, etc. should be very familiar to you. If not, you’re in the wrong field :). For those who don’t work in these fields but are curious about it, these are some of the security related feeds provided by independent organizations such as MITRE or NIST and are part of the “Making Security Measurable” initiative. These feeds provide meta data about things related to Computer/Network Security such as standard names for platforms/operating-systems/software/hardware, standard names for common vulnerabilities, weakness, configurations.
