Is there any programm which will let me scrape all images from a twitter account ?
sometimes it doesnt work for me
im trying to find a 2nd
Have you tried this? https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/botrockets-twitter-images-scraper.971725/
i downloaded that but wasnt sure how to use it
msdos came up and it just showed text. do you know how to use it?
I see now, it's not exactly what you're after.
It works fine, but it scrapes the image links on the first 100 pages for a certain keyword, then saves the images in the Downloads folder where you extracted the tool. So it's a Twitter Image Downloader by hashtag/keyword. It doesn't work with the advanced search operators (e.g. from:username) unfortunately.
image links? where or how do i input image links? i just see a folder with the .exe file and i click it , text shows, i dont see any options or buttons to press
You can do it with screen capture i think , there are a lot of free programs there
You don't put links anywhere.
There's a keywords.txt, that's where you put the keywords to scrape. Start the tool. It goes through 100 pages, extracts the image urls in the background, then it starts to download the pics to the Downloads folder where you unpacked the .rar. If you quit before it finishes scraping all 100 pages, it won't download anything.
It works just fine for me, but it's not what you wanted, because it scrapes by keyword, not by username.
If you don't want to download pics from too many users, you can try DownThemAll! + DownThemAll! AntiContainer addon for Firefox.
Head over to the page with the pics of your desired user, scroll to the bottom (either by hand, with something like this or a script), then use the above mentioned addons to download the pics only. In theory it should work, but i haven't tried it, so there's a chance that it doesn't.
