collecting and sorting twitter data by time slots- using Max Msp?

For a data visualisation class at uni, I am trying to collect all of the tweets in Sydney over a period of one week sorted into five minute timeslots (e.g. all of the tweets in Sydney from 9:05am-9:10am last tuesday in one group, all of the tweets from 9:10am-9:15am in another group etc…)

It has been suggested to me to use Max Msp and something similar to this: http://cycling74.com/toolbox/searchtweet-design-patches-that-respond-to-twitter-posts/ using the twitter4j library, but I do not want to use any key words. I need to collect the data from each time slot and then see what keyword trends occured in that time.

I have very limited knowledge of code or programming, so if anyone is able to help me out with a solution to this problem I would be extremely grateful!
