I want to be able to connect to Twitter API and get tweets from a specific region with specific hashtags or keywords in realtime, stream the tweets into some sort of filter to apply some rules, then store tweet groups in a database.

How can I do this with SAP? Use HANA streaming analytics?

How can I connect to an external API like Twitter or LinkedIn?

Yes you can definitely use HANA Streaming Analytics for this. The one piece that isn't available 'out of the box' is a pre-built Twitter adapter so you would need to build a Twitter input adapter.

This tutorial walks through the process for building a custom adapter using the Java Toolkit:
