Methodology if you’re curious

  • Pull in all tweets that contain some version of “malort court” or “#malortcourt” using this regex (#*)[Mm]alort(\\s*)[Cc]ourt
  • Figure out what the year, month, and day of the actual malort court was based on the top number of tweets containing the malort court regex
  • Clean those tweets up, add year, month, day, whether they happened on the day of an acutal malort court or not, etc.
  • Find the first tweet and last tweet of each malort court day (just eyeballed it lol)
  • Butttttt, not all malort court tweets have “malort court” in the tweet itself. SO, grab all the tweets ever tweeted by the account after the first ever malort court tweet in 2015
  • Filter those tweets to ones that happened before the first and last malort court tweets every year, so we don’t keep anything that’s not malort court-related
  • Save that in data
  • Download and store any pics associated with tweets in the pics directory
    • They’re named based on {tweet's status_id}-{tweet's url id}.{url's extension}
  • Yay 😆
