    Ive written a quick tool in the last 2 hours and posted it on the internet to search twitter for a certain term i.e. lg plasma tv and return about the last 1000 twitter users to mention this search term.

    i think this could be of some use to people trying to target an audience for CPA campaigns.

    for instance if you have a good CPA offer for iphone 3gs then put iphone+3gs into the twitter search tool and it will return about 1000 users who're actively talking about it.

    it's my first script to interface with the twitter API so it's VERY beta, but i hope some people get some use out of it. if you can think of any suggestions let me know.

    the tool is here:

    It looks great, works fast. Maybe add an output option for the format of the names. For example instead of twitter.com/usernamehere just usernamehere, a lot of programs for Twitter load names in that format. This script will save me some time with some of my current projects.

    I doubt you'll be willing to but if you didn't mind would you be willing to share the script for my own personal use? Have seen too many great tools stop being hosted in my time. I'll surely understand if it's a no. :D

    Without seeing the tweet you mostly end up with a bunch of other spammers posting about the same offers. :D

    Nice tool :) If you want to find all messages from each user you can always search your term at search.twitter.com.

    hey all,

    i added a bit more to it over the last 24 hours.

    the main page now has a google map where you can drop a map marker anywhere in the world, set the search radius and it will only show tweets from that region.

    example:

    --the iphone 3gs is already released in america but not australia.

    --do a search for iphone 3gs with the map marker over melbourne, Australia, then target that list of returned users for free 3gs iphone offers.....

    i've learnt quite a bit from this forum so would like to give somethng back to BHW members. if there's any improvements (or any new scripts entirely) then let me know.

    the link again is www*trolleyblog*com/leechtwit

    yeah true but the results from twitter search will only return 100 max results per page. this script iterates through the search pages, seperates the user ID, name and link and returns them in a table.

    they both will return the same data, this one just speeds things up a bit!

    how about adding the functionality of extracting emails of these targeted users. that would be kickass.
