Twitter Scraper

Golang implementation of python library https://github.com/bisguzar/twitter-scraper

Twitter's API is annoying to work with, and has lots of limitations — luckily their frontend (JavaScript) has it's own API, which I reverse-engineered. No API rate limits. No tokens needed. No restrictions. Extremely fast.

You can use this library to get the text of any user's Tweets trivially.

Installation

go get -u github.com/n0madic/twitter-scraper

Usage

Get user tweets

package main

import (
    "context"
    "fmt"
    twitterscraper "github.com/n0madic/twitter-scraper"
)

func main() {
    for tweet := range twitterscraper.GetTweets(context.Background(), "Twitter", 50) {
        if tweet.Error != nil {
            panic(tweet.Error)
        }
        fmt.Println(tweet.HTML)
    }
}

It appears you can ask for up to 50 tweets.

Search tweets by query standard operators

Tweets containing “twitter” and “scraper” and “data“, filtering out retweets:

package main

import (
    "context"
    "fmt"
    twitterscraper "github.com/n0madic/twitter-scraper"
)

func main() {
    for tweet := range twitterscraper.SearchTweets(context.Background(),
        "twitter scraper data -filter:retweets", 50) {
        if tweet.Error != nil {
            panic(tweet.Error)
        }
        fmt.Println(tweet.HTML)
    }
}

The search ends if we have 50 tweets.

See Rules and filtering for build standard queries.

Get profile

package main

import (
    "fmt"
    twitterscraper "github.com/n0madic/twitter-scraper"
)

func main() {
    profile, err := twitterscraper.GetProfile("Twitter")
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }
    fmt.Printf("%+v\n", profile)
}
package main

import (
    "fmt"
    twitterscraper "github.com/n0madic/twitter-scraper"
)

func main() {
    trends, err := twitterscraper.GetTrends()
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }
    fmt.Println(trends)
}
