    I'm new to FollowLiker (and programs like this in general) and I'd like to scrape Twitter for bios and stats for lists of usernames, like lists I can get from my own accounts as well as lists I'm generating through FollowLiker. I know I can have FollowLiker scrape accounts based on searching bios for various search terms, but I'd rather do that myself whenever I choose to do so. FollowLiker does not seem to have a way to display or export a list of bios for the accounts it scrapes.

    I have found blog posts referring to various paid services and subscription utilities (like chrismakara.com/social-media/how-to-create-a-twitter-dashboard-in-excel -- sorry cant yet post working links here but you'd know how to copy the URL and visit that page if you wanted to ) but I dont want to pay for something I can't test first in some sort of free or demo version and I don't know will work (or still works) for this purpose. Also, there are probably ways I can do this with a general-purpose scraper like Scrapebox but I'd have to program that myself. If I can know that would be fairly easy and reliable to do I'll maybe go that route, but I'd still like to have a simpler program or process where I can just input a list of usernames and get an output I can somehow read and analyze for the content of bios or (if possible) other account stats as well.

    Anyway, FollowLiker apparently scrapes Twitter bios for it's own internal search / query purposes, but like I said it does not save or make available the bios themselves to save, read, or export. Are there any programs that can do this which are either free or available for one-time purchase?

    I'd also like to know if this is possible. Particularly the followers of a twitter account. I know of ways to do it for fee to get 5,000 users, but what if I needed 50,000?

    I have rootjazz twitterdub (just got it so I'm not too familiar with how to use it), I tried, but I'm unable to figure out how to export a list of the followers of an account (which shows their bio). Do you have an explanation how to do that? Can we actually export the list of followers into an excel spreadsheet that would have the bio info of each user?

    Followliker support would be unlikely to help with this issue. I have followliker twitter version and I'm not able to view anything other than usernames. can't see bio or any other info about the users.
