  • snscrape

    A social networking service scraper in Python

    I've been using this https://github.com/JustAnotherArchivist/snscrape and with 5 threads and no vpn just my laptop and getting about 1 million tweets a day (vs 1000 before being rate limited on the api).

  • jekyll-twitter-plugin

    A Liquid tag plugin for the Jekyll blogging engine that embeds Tweets, Timelines and more from Twitter API

    Wow this is disruptive given it's less than 1 week's notice.

    I've been using a Jekyll plugin for like 4 years to embed tweets on my site. Nothing crazy, just using: https://github.com/rob-murray/jekyll-twitter-plugin

    Since it uses the API I guess that's going to go away. I guess I'll never link another tweet on my site again.

  • markdown-tweet-scheduler
