A twarc plugin to extract hashtags from Twitter data

Project description


This module is extends twarc with a hashtags command that will extract and count the hashtags in a tweet dataset.


pip install twarc-hashtags

Collect some Twitter data, for example:

twarc2 search blacklivesmatter tweets.jsonl 

Because you installed the plugin you have a new subcommand hashtags:

twarc2 hashtags tweets.jsonl hashtags.csv

Then open hashtags.csv in your favourite spreadsheet program or DataFrame library.

Behind the scenes twarc-hashtags uses Python's native support for SQLite to create a database and then insert/query it. You can see this database after the program finishes as hashtags.db in your current working directory.


--group: group results by day, week, month, year

--limit: limit to this number of hashtags (per group if --group is used)

--db: if you would like to name the database something other than hashtags.db

--no-insert: use an existing database instead of inserting (useful for large numbers of tweets)
