    Hi all,

    I have the ability to gather extremely large lists of unique & real (non-spambot) twitter users that fall into any given category. People looking for work, people into game of thrones, people who love shoes.. you name it.

    I can probably generate lists of about 10,000 - 25,000 users per week per niche.

    What I'm wondering is.. would people buy this sort of thing in the marketplace? Is there any interest?

    It depends. Personally I would not buy this kind of list because I can scrape them for free. Even if this list is better than I can scrape on my own, I would not be sure, that it is not sold to 10 different marketers which can render it useless.

    Thanks for the reply. That was sortof my thoughts. In reality the program auto-replies to certain tweets. "I need a job" replies with "Have you tried working online? XYZ.com" etc.. tuned to whatever niche. I was just thinking if I didn't respond to them and just collected accounts.. might be worth something. But your points are pretty valid. I think it would be tough to sell.

    What tool would you use to scrape followers of a popular account, though?

    Twitter API and some custom code. Write the tool yourself and it will do everything you need. Most public tools are limited. https://dev.twitter.com/overview/api/twitter-libraries
