    I'm after a service that will bulk check a list of say 100 words that I enter and it'll check to see if they're available on Twitter.

    I don't mean services that check 1 username over loads of social networking sites; I mean check loads of possible usernames and it tells me if they're available or not.

    Any suggestions?

    Such a bot could easily be created for quite a cheap price if you have that option, but I personally don't know of such a service.

    If anybody could create a bot, it would be great.

    It would be a superb time saver vs checking them all 1 by 1.

    If I find some time today I will code it. But don't expect anything fancy ...

    Mate, if it allows me to paste a list of keywords in (more the merrier - 100? 1000?) and goes off and checks, that's all I need.

    After it's checked it just displays which are free (or displays them all with free/taken next to them).

    Any idea what the limits would be? I'm sure Twitter limit how many [get] commands 1 IP can request.

    Not sure about the limits since I have never messed with Twitter, but I am sure they can be bypassed. Once it's done I will PM you. :)

    Thanks very much.

    After 2nd thoughts, I don't think you need to log in to check - if you go to a page where the username is free, Twitter shows a 'Sorry, that page doesn't exist!' page. So a bypass wouldn't be needed there.

    I have one of these that I had half done, just doing a video for it to upload then I will post it up in the downloads section

    ** EDIT **: Finished the bot as I had asked for something people wanted in this thread. Just uploading videos and VT, will then stick it in the download section

    Can you fire me a PM or bump this thread when it's on the download section please.

    Is this a standalone bit of software that can run on a PC?
