Add result type to recent search and similar endpoints
We would like to propose the possibility of changing the result type of recent search. Currently, the results are ordered in inverse chronologycal order, meaning that if we want to retrieve "popular" (big enough engagement metrics) tweets from a rather popular hashtag or search query, we will end up with many tweets which do not have enough metrics to be considered "popular". This means we need to retrieve every tweet possibe in order to detect "popular tweets", resulting in a large consumption of rate limits.
A possible solution to this problem could be adding the V1.1 request parameter "result_type", which changed the order in which tweets are retrieved. Other possible solutions could be to filter tweets based on minimum of likes or retweets.
