Social Media Web Scraping

I am seeking someone who has existing software and/or expertise in scraping leading social media websites. I am posting a few applications on Freelancer, please review all of them, and also advise if you have other valuable applications you may already have that I may have interest.


A. I will provide a flatfile of Twitter Usernames, such as:




B. You would read use Usernames sequentially and convert the Username to its Follower's Page URL, as follows:

[url removed, login to view]

[url removed, login to view]

[url removed, login to view]

C. Then using a REGULAR EXPRESSION, for each Follower's page, retract all of the Twitter Usernames (Followers) from that page. The format of a Username is as follows (Use a Regular Expression for this):

i. The @ symbol

ii. Following by a group of letters or numbers

iii. Terminating with a SPACE

FOLLOWERS are listed sequentially in a TABLE on the Follower's Page. Make sure you can extract the full page, because in the HTML version, AJAX is used to retrieve more usernames as the user presses PAGE DOWN on that page. In the webscrape, I'm not sure how many users are provided at once. You may need to call the Follower's page many times with a counter or something to get all the Usernames. Please test this to ensure you can do it.

D. Append all of the followers to the indicated OUTPUT TEXT FILE

The application would be an EXE that runs from the DOS Command Window with the following Syntax: TwitFollowers [url removed, login to view] [url removed, login to view]

where TwitFollowers is the name of the application, [url removed, login to view] is the text file of usernames, and [url removed, login to view] is the output file of followers.

E. The format of the output file should be as follows:



For example using the sample file provided above, the output file should look like:
