Why is it impossible to find a Twitter Search Tweet Scraper?

    All the current twitter scraping tools I've seen scrape user profiles or a users twitter feed.

    I want a tool that scrapes tweets containing a word or phrase regardless of who tweeted it.

    Dominator scrapes user data of users who tweeted a word or phrase. Why not scrape the tweet containing the word/phase too?

    Example: Scrape last 500 tweets containing Tom Brady.

    There were tools that did this two years ago but they disappeared or stopped working. Is this due to Twitter API limits?
