    Good evening everybody.

    As usual I am in the process of building myself a macro in Imacros to extract usernames from Twitter. And as usual, I am frustrated by how fragile the macro turns out to be. Do you know of any current username extractors for Twitter? Preferably free or nulled.

    Thx in advance

    Are you just scraping the followers of certain people? I am halfway through trying to write something that works this way. Hit me on Skype, custombot, if you want to chat

    Not sure if its what you want as you didn't come to chat (Fatboy feel sooooo lonely ;)) but try this:

    http://www.botcentral.net/bot-download-page

    VT
    Code:
    https://www.virustotal.com/file/e2965426696a0ef3b14de9e17b73bfd1ce10145a315ecd60d998e82e47d585c0/analysis/1326627547/
    
    See how that goes for you - hasn't been tested a lot but seemed to work :)

    Hey bud. Tried adding you to Skype but my current incarnation of Ubuntu does not work well with it. Will keep in touch. Thanks for the link. Will check it out.

    I did something like this with winautomation. Try downloading that.

    Hello Fatboy.

    Still can't add you to Skype (god damned Ubuntu 11.10 ruining my life).

    Tried your bot, can only extract 20 users at a time. Which is a lot less than the other guy here that manages to extract 480 :) Running XP and Net framework 4 in a virtualbox container with a really low amount of ram (like 200mb). Will keep on trying. Thanks for your efforts in any case

    It collects 20 each loop - the bot uses the mobile site and that only displays 20 people at a time, the bot then clicks 'next' and then gathers the next 20.

    I let it go and it collected a few thousand names without a problem....its not multi threaded as I just threw it together as well.

    i was able to get the WinAutomation Console to extract hundreds, if not thousands, of usernames in seconds. There are specific tasks related to twitter too. Definitely worth a check.

    Why don't you try twDocs? Just download the tweets as .xls and then extract the usernames.
