Finding Underrated People on Twitter with TURI (Twitter Underrated Index)

This repository holds scripts used to make calls to the Twitter API (via the python-twitter package to calculate user's TURI (Twitter Underrated Index): an index that attempts to figure out who is underrated on Twitter and therefore a good candidate to follow.

This corresponding blog post goes into more detail about the reasoning behind the index and how it works.

To run the code, you have to add a file to the main directory called api_credentials.py. Within this file, you need to add the following dict:

credentials = {'consumer_key':'insert_your_consumer_key',
               'consumer_secret':'insert_your_consumer_secret',
               'access_token_key':'insert_your_access_token_key',
               'access_token_secret':'insert your access token secret',
               'sleep_on_rate_limit':True}
