Hello,
I am working on a program to process twitter activity for a particular set of key words. I would like to get the timestamp of all of the tweets imported to matlab. The base program I am using to help me code is found here: https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/34837-twitty
Any help on obtaining timestamps from the Twitter API would be appreciated!

The "created_at" field can display the time-stamp of the tweet, but there is no direct option available to get the timestamp with twitty. For the summary of the twitty's available methods, run the 'twitty.API' command. Try parsing the twitter Structure returned from twitter to find out if that structure has the field "created_at"
