How I built it

researching the web and with sweat and tears

Challenges I ran into

I struggled with setting up the APIs as I had no experience Also, Twitter limits the number requests the API can do in an hour which was discouraging.

What I learned

APIs can be very useful and have a lot of possibilities.
