    What would be the best way to scrape the tweets from a single Twitter profile?

    Thank you

    I would write up a small script to do that.

    If you let me know how you want the format, I can write one for you.

    Hi lanbo

    That would be really nice of you...thank you

    What I was looking for was a script that would scrape as many tweets from a single user profile. I was looking for each tweet exported to a line in notepad or Excel. I don't really need username, date/time stamps, etc, just the tweets themselves and as many as possible.

    Thank you again.

    This would also be helpful for me too since Allmytweets.net is down. The share would be greatly appreciated lanbo!

    You can use the Twitter REST API or cURL to get them. If it is PHP your language of choice I can help
