Get full Tweet metadata given a list of status IDs.
Based on the code and example given by Alex Muller on his blog.
Install the egg.
Run the tweet-archiver script now found in your Python’s bin directory like so:./bin/tweet-archiver infile.txt outfile.json
replacing infile.txt with the path to the USERNAME-tweets.txt file sent to you by Twitter and outfile.json with the path to the JSON file in which you want to collate the tweet data.
The script will ask for your username and password. This is not stored anywhere and is only used for API access.
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
