Open-source Twitter Intelligence

I continue being curious about OSINT, and I found this project named Open-source Twitter Intelligence in GIT Hub .

It’s a set of code that do scraping on Twitter without using Twitter’s API, allowing you to scrape a user’s followers, following, Tweets and more.

Apparently Twitter’s API has some limits and this approach avoid them.

It’s written in Perl, so I cloned with PyCharm, I uploaded some libraries and I created a file that enabled me to test it:

import twint

c = twint.Config()

c.Username = "joa_pen"
c.Custom["tweet"] = ["id"]
c.Custom["user"] = ["bio"]
c.Limit = 10
c.Store_csv = True
c.Output = "none"
