Python Script to Download Tweets

Use the script get_tweets.py to download the last 100 tweets (or whatever number you choose) from any Twitter user.

Setup

(1) You need to get your Twitter API Credentials by creating a new app at developer.twitter.com.

(2) This script uses Tweepy. If you don't have Tweepy installed you need to run this command on the terminal first:

$ sudo pip install tweepy

Clone and use the Python script

Now you're ready to clone and use the get_tweets script.

$ git clone https://github.com/gitlaura/get_tweets.git
$ cd get_tweets

Enter the appropriate keys from your Twitter app in lines 11-15 of get_tweets.py using any text editor.

Finally you can run the script by entering one Twitter username at the command line:

$ python get_tweets.py [twitter_username]
