accessing Twitter content

Jul 12, 2010 at 1:16 AM
Dear NodeXl group,
I'm interested in tracking and documenting the activity of different kinds of mentoring interactions between dyads of mentors and proteges on a longitudinal basis. What idea is have proteges twitter an account with the message content indicating the time spent on a coded form of activity with a coded mentor. I should be able to collect the twitter data on a weekly basis, say, parse the content for the codes and enter that information into NodeXL.
Has anyone done something like this?
Cheers,
