The second workspace reads the cached tweets, styles each tweet for KML and then writes them out to KML. This workspace is published to FME Server and registered with the KML Network Link Service.
Tweet Search and Archive Runner (D008-tweet-archive-runner.fmw) A third workspace uses the FMEServerJobSubmitter transformer to run the Tweet Search and Archive workspace on FME Server. The workspace is run at a set interval using a bat file. The interval is set to a value that won't exceed the
Twitter API rate limit of 150 requests per hour.
