    Normally I would code it myself, I thought instead of reinventing the wheel ;)

    Why not see if any other programers out there on BHW already or would be willing to code a simple php scrape.(better or quicker)


    Goal: Scrape all the followers of a specific twitter account into single xml/csv file. (account has 500k + followers)
    -------------------------

    I figure a couple of proxies and twitter accounts (just for viewing the followers and not pissing twitter off) will be needed.

    Then testing out the script so Twitter doesn't through a fit.

    Just want to some tracking of competitors followers trend and similarities over a month period.

    So source code would be needed.

    I would not be reselling the script, just for private use.

    Don't really want to raise a bunch of flags with twitter anyway :)

    PM Prices and time (1 to 3 days was what I was planning on spending myself)

    Thanks!

    I might be interested in this, do you have many offers? If not, how much are you interested in spending for this?
