    How can I obtain the alt text Instagram automatically generates for a picture? It sometimes pops up instead of a picture when I'm browsing on a slower internet connection but I'd like to be able to get/scrape the alt text to help me with some hashtag research.

    the alt text should exist in the post_details. Just get your bots scrape module to get all the information of the image to a CSV then you can load into excel and use the alt-text column for your needs
