    Hello,

    do you know where I can find a free simple tweet scraper (bot or online site)?

    I would like to scrape tweets from specific accounts, and my FL is working VERY slowly.


    Thanks.

    Thanks. But I only need to scrape. I don't know why, the scraping feature works very, very slowly with FL.

    So, even if it's an amateur bot, it would be fine.

    I have used this one in recent months and it works excellent in my experience:

    http://www.mytwitterscraper.com/

    It's a free open-source twitter scraper which uses the Java Runtime Environment and your credentials from a twitter app which you create using your twitter developer account. It can be quite useful, though its most obvious use is to scrape tweets based on direct keyword queries.

    I hope I didn't need to post a virus-total or anything as this is simply a suggestion of a free open-source tool I know to work, which is found at sourceforge, so hopefully it's ok - please let me know otherwise mods, and I'll go do a virus total scan somewhere. It's not my program. I don't have an affiliation with them, and it's free and publicly available open-source software, so should be cool. Anyway, it works and is free, so it's perfect for anyone in this situation.

    --------

    * Also keep in mind there are better python based solutions available on github.
    ** For the tech saavy among us these tweet scrapers will be much more practical, and can be directly implemented via APIs to your other applications and/or various needs and setups.

    Here's a free one I just built as a Ubot tutorial - I'll be adding onto it, similar to the Google Results Scraper

    Once it's complete I will later release as an .exe
