A twarc plugin to read Twitter data and output the tweet ids
This module is a simple example of how to create a plugin for twarc. It uses click-plugins to extend the main twarc command, and to manage the command line options.
First you need to install twarc and this plugin:
pip install twarc pip install twarc-ids
Now you can collect data using the core twarc utility:
twarc search blacklivesmatter > tweets.jsonl
And you have a new subcommand
ids that is supplied by twarc-ids.
twarc ids tweets.jsonl > ids.txt
When creating your setup.py make sure you don't forget the entry_points magic so that twarc will find your plugin when it is installed!
