how to import tweets from specific twitter names

Jun 20, 2013 at 5:07 PM
I would like to import tweets from specific groups that have Twitter accounts, but it seems as if I can either import tweets with a mention of that group/Twitter name or just download the connections/networks/followers, etc. of a twitter name, but what about the tweets themselves of specific Twitter accounts/names/groups?

Thanks so much!

Hello! Thanks for the continued interest in NodeXL!

NodeXL does not have a "get all the tweets from a person and analyze that stream" feature - even though its a fine idea.

We offer a "search for all the tweets that contain a mention of a person and analyze that stream feature" - which the new API 1.1 makes more useful than it used to be given high limits on total tweets you can collect.

The suggested importer is a good idea however and it remains on our (long) pending work item list.
