+
+Millions of public Twitter streams harbor a wealth of data, and once you mine them, you can gain some valuable insights. This short and concise book offers a collection of recipes to help you extract nuggets of Twitter information using easy-to-learn Python tools. Each recipe offers a discussion of how and why the solution works, so you can quickly adapt it to fit your particular needs. The recipes include techniques to:
+
+- Use OAuth to access Twitter data
+- Create and analyze graphs of retweet relationships
+- Use the streaming API to harvest tweets in realtime
+- Harvest and analyze friends and followers
+- Discover friendship cliques
+- Summarize webpages from short URLs
+
+This book is a perfect companion to [Mining the Social Web](http://amzn.to/d1Ci8A).
