    I think he means the following two things;

    1.) how to scrape all the hashtags used by a specific user during their last x number of posts

    2.) how to scrape all the (top/trending) hashtags from a specific location that is different than where OP is (i.e. another country / city)

    Ive actually been looking for something like this as well for both IG & Twitter but hasnt had much luck yet. All I could manage (apart from going through their post history manually) was to input some of the users`s more unique tags into Hastagify one by one and see if there were any connections significant to other tags. That way you could kinda get a basic collection of tags used by the account and other similar accounts youre looking at...

    ...needless to say it wasnt very effecive :D hahaha

    Anyone else has any other ideas about this?

    Collecting hashtags from popular users to use them again


    You're right. The problem is, twitter tags could have different popularity than IG tags.

    Exactly. Hastagify is pretty much only good for Twitter and even than only for super popular tags which are obviously not the ones we`re going for.
