    I am sorry for the noob question but I'm really curious.

    If I wanted to learn how to make my own Twitter bot, what language(s) should I learn?

    Sorry. I didn't look. I figured I won't understand a thing without learning how to code first. I guess I'll check them one by one. :D

    I made my own scraper in php for scraping retweets from a list of posts, but API keeps blocking it, so it's next to useless.
    If someone knows any way to do it without API I'll be really grateful.

    Is it blocked all together? Can't you just use multiple accounts/bigger delays between requests, so you won't get blocked? I guess it's blocked, because you send too many requests in a given time frame from the same account. Or maybe i'm hundert percent wrong, i'm far from a coder.

    Adding a few scrapers to Wilson's list:
    https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/web-robots-scraper/pmagfjeddlknbohojnepcplpgjlincak
    https://www.import.io/
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/mytwitterscraper/?source=navbar

    I have used all of these before. The first 2 can be used not just for Twitter, but for web scraping in general, those still work for sure. The last one is Twitter only and i'm not sure, if it's still working or not.

    Right, it needs too much time between queries. That's a big issue if you need to scrape 100 tweets.

    Hey Asif. Very nice thread. You should think about doing one for linkedin too.
