    I created a twitter list and was wondering how to scrape the tweets including tweets with images? I would rather use them for mine own tweets instead of retweeting the pretty image tweet stream.

    That tool only gets you the url of the image. Posting the url works just the same and looks just the same on twitter if you uploaded it yourself. It does not look any different.

    I don't have a solution to save the images yourself just yet but, it should be possible to make a macro to save the images from the urls that are scraped with "tweet Scraper v101"

    The only real way I've found of doing this with tweets that have images, is by using BufferApp and doing it manually.
