Archives information that Twitter's archive does not

###Introduction###

These python scripts allow you to archive information that is not included in Twitter's archive tool. Currently the scripts create CSV files of your followers and following lists.

###Implementation###

####Python libraries#### Required libraries and modules:

If you have easy_install installed, use:

$ sudo easy_install twython

$ sudo easy_install unicodecsv

####Twitter API#### You will need to create a Twitter API application. You can do so at https://apps.twitter.com/app/new. You will need to fill out the APP_KEY and APP_SECRET from the Twitter application in the python files.

####File settings####

  • APP_KEY - The app key from your Twitter application
  • APP_SECRET - The app secret from your Twitter application
  • USERNAME - The username you wish to get the information for
  • ADVANCED - Saves other returned information such as time zone and language; disabled by default
You can’t perform that action at this time.
