    Hi, I am looking for away to scrape twitter usernames from another account, so i would add them to my bot to follow

    Exactly what Tweet Adder explained here is what am looking for

    I already have a bot, so i can't buy it, isnt there another way around this that i can follow probably free

    Nice share Webwhizz. Tweetadder can't do this? I know for a fact that followliker can, which is even much cheaper that tweetadder.

    I must be missing something.

    Im soon releasing a tool for reviewers so we can do this kind of things, also scraping tweets and spin them automatically.
    It is going to be called Twitter Marketer PRO, since its main focus is to get full twitter profile leads with emails. (Many profiles have them.) If someone is interested on this I can give you a reviewer license via PM.

    Ohh by the way, it also scrapes usernames (pretty basic) and twitter ids.

    Okay, i tested it and it works :)

    But it got only 100+ usernames, the person i was scraping has about 145k followers

    Is there a way to get more automatically?

    Or i have to be going down on the mobile browser manually, to do this. Anyways thanks for the share......


    An intrested, if it can scrape all usernames or thousands :)

    And the email leads would be what i want for marketing too

    Hi, did you try the max amount of runs?(cycles) i only tested it on a 10k account but i can up it . it was getting me about 20-30 usernames each run, it saves them after all runs you set are completed, the reason i used android browser is to make it faster, because normal twitter is to slow, anyway i will try and improve it over the weekend thanks :)
