GitHub - eleurent/twitter-graph: Fetch and visualize the graph of your Twitter friends and followers.
I spend a lot of time on Twitter, and over the years I have been following a wide variety of people: old friends, work colleagues, funny accounts, etc. Gradually, my timeline has become this messy mix that makes Twitter so enjoyable. Wouldn't it be be nice, though, to have some hindsight and perspective on what's actually going on?
The data scraping used by this project ^ is slowed down by Twitter’s API limits, and I wanted to build out a faster way to generate these beautiful social network graphs. By analyzing the network requests a Twitter webpage makes when loading data, I built out a scraper that collects data from Twitter’s private GraphQL API. My scraper outperformed existing scrapers as it bypassed the public API’s limitations.
