What is the argument to get ALL tweets from a certain country for a period of 24 hours?

Have you had a look at the documentation on our Twitter Target? Twitter.text is used to search the content of the 140 character Twitter message.

To look for any users from Spain or Portugal, you could run a query similar to the following:
