Twitter Hashtag Scraper scrapes tweets with your desired hashtag(s). Namely it scrapes:

  • User information, such as name, id, location, follower count, profile URL/image/banner
  • List of tweets with their texts
  • Statistics for each tweet: favorites, replies, and retweets counts

Here are just some of the ways you could use that data:

  • Track discussions about your brand, products, country, or city.
  • Monitor your competitors and see how popular they really are, and how you can get a competitive edge.
  • Keep an eye on new trends, attitudes, and fashions as they emerge.
  • Use the data to train AI models or for academic research.
  • Track sentiment to make sure your investments are protected.
