Warning: this package expressly violates Twitter's TOS #60
I'm not a lawyer, but using a program to download the webpage and parse it sounds like "scraping", which their ToS is clearly intentioned to prohibit. Including a link to the ToS on a public page has not held up in court for Twitter to protect their content. This is because using your package does not require agreeing to that ToS (no signing in), and the link isnt "sufficient notice." Of course that could go the other way in the future, and you are IMHO breaking those terms....so you should at least _warn_ users of this potential.…
