How to develop a feed system like twitter for bb app

Hello and good day everyone , i am trying to develop a feed system like twitter or facebook on my bb app , i have my server that is php based that queries my db for the latest info for the past 5 mins and then my bb app that runs in a timertask and queries my server for the latest info for the past 5 mins , now i have an issue with displaying older feeds just like u have it on twitter and also keeping the feeds in sync any ideas and suggestions will be appreciated thanks.

Not sure what your question is here.  Why can't you persist the data you receive for a period?

im talking about the the twitter system for example , u can observe that once u launch the app you will see the recent feeds and older feeds , i know for sure that they are actually persisting the feeds , but how do they get it to work so seamlessly like that and with less network calls
