    Easily Archive and Search Your Twitter Data with our Syncable Desktop App

    Another shameless plug: I made a cross platform "native (Rust with Webkit)" desktop app that does the same thing (Win/Lin/Mac). It also allows you to see your "profile" afterwards in the app, search within your Tweets, and allows backing up things like mentions, responses, likes, etc:

  • snscrape

    A social networking service scraper in Python

    I hope you’ll get a better answer, but a minimal solution is to use snscrape ( to download a raw JSON dump of a user timeline. Some caveats: 1. This doesn’t work for all users (e.g. some accounts seem to remain deindexed after unsuspensions). 2. While you can get rid of 90% of the file size by removing fluff columns (e.g. related to processing media and emojis), keep a backup. When importing such JSON, I unwittingly did a lossy data type conversion, and it can be irreparable once the tweets are deleted.

    $ snscrape --progress --jsonl twitter-user jack > jack.json

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
