Improvements to Grailbird


I’ve been wondering why I can’t find much information regarding Grailbird, or more generally the Twitter Archive. Many have asked about this and yet received no answer, so I do not bear high hopes.

There are some bugs that I have discovered in the twt library, and have actually rectified:

  • Newlines in tweets do not appear
  • Tweets with entities and multiple Emoji will glitch
  • Recently, with extended_entities, multiple images in one tweet

Also, Twitter cards do not appear at all. This is not as pertinent, but still welcome.

And if you refer to that repository, I have modified much of the Grailbird code to display tweets through TTYtter. I hope this is allowed.
