I am a researcher, looking at the ways the users can be phished how the attacker are using this methods. I am using a machine learning platform (Orange) to fetch sample tweets.
But I discovered that the REST API removes the back links and also converts the link to twitter short form (i.e., https://t.co/ ) unfortunately this will defat the purpose for me since I do need to examine the links to identify the phished or spam tweets. is there a way of disabling this feature to get the full link and full tweet without any cleansing?
failing that, do you of a test datset that can be used for tweeter that has phished and good tweets?
