How can I get tweets by another user? Is possible?


#1

Hello,

I am a doctoral student in computer science and work with data mining in social networks, more specifically with sentiment analysis and classifying tweets.
I have a doubt, How can I get tweets by another user? Is possible?
For example:
Exist a account, that it isn’t mine, named X. This account has 3 followers. Is it possible to collect the tweets that this people (3 followers) posted in public time line? How do this?

Thanks a lot

You need to take a look here: https://dev.twitter.com/docs/api/1.1.
The answer is YES, you can retrieve tweets from another user using API’s methods.

You can make “expirements” with console dev.twitter.com/console.
