โš ๏ธ Disclaimer

While we strive to ensure the optimum functionality of Tweet-Flash, certain features such as image filtering may not always perform as expected due to external factors. Moreover, the tool's URL scraping functionality is not compatible with the filter option, as it utilizes search filters that are not an option for scraping specific URLs .

The stated cost of $1 per 100k results and the speed of 75 tweets per second are estimates and actual costs and speeds may vary. Factors influencing the final cost and speed include the type of content being scraped, the volume of data processed, and whether options such as additional user data collection or language detection are utilized. Generally, more inputs mean lower cost at higher speeds, and more memory means more speed. By using Tweet-Flash, users acknowledge these potential variations in cost and performance.

Our tool offers a range of features for custom data scraping. Here are just a few of them:

  • Optional queries for focused data collection
  • Multiple language support to cater to global needs

๐ŸŽฏ Ideal for a Range of Users

Tweet-Flash is engineered to offer high efficiency, speed, and cost-effectiveness to a wide variety of users:

  • Large-Scale Data Analysts: If your work involves extensive link or user scraping tasks, Tweet-Flash is designed to handle large volumes of data with ease, making it an efficient and cost-effective solution.
  • Filtered Data Enthusiasts: For those interested in detailed, filtered user scraping, Tweet-Flash's powerful filtering capabilities can help you narrow down and extract the data that matters most.
  • Deep-Dive Researchers: If your research involves comprehensive search scraping, Tweet-Flash is equipped to delve deep into the data, enabling you to uncover valuable insights.
  • Time-Conscious Users: If you have time-sensitive tasks that require quick results, Tweet-Flash's lightweight nature and quick startup time ensure you get the data you need, when you need it.

While Tweet-Flash excels in handling these large-scale tasks, it's also a great tool for smaller projects due to its adjustable settings and scalability. Regardless of the size of your task, Tweet-Flash is built to deliver.

๐Ÿ• Custom Time Frame

To set a custom time frame for tweets, use the Start and End options in the Custom Time Frame section. This will filter tweets published between the start (inclusive) and end (exclusive) dates. For instance, if you wish to scrape tweets from January 2023 to May 2023, simply set Start to '01/01/2023' and End to '05/01/2023'.

โš™๏ธ Customize Run

You can customize your scraping run by adjusting the maximum number of attempts and threads. The maximum number of attempts ensures that the tool tries to scrape a tweet multiple times before skipping it due to errors. The number of threads determines how many processes run concurrently. If the Manually Set Number of Threads/Workers field is left blank, the tool will automatically optimize based on available memory.

๐Ÿ“Š Memory and Thread Usage

Tweet-Flash uses highly efficient scraping techniques, minimizing the need for large amounts of memory and keeping costs low. For optimal performance, we recommend using no more than 150MB of memory per query or profile. If you're running multiple queries or profiles, or are collecting advanced user info, increase memory allocation proportionally. Note that the data parsing process does utilize extra threads, but the overall impact on performance is less than that of threads used for scraping.

๐Ÿ’ก Feature Requests

We're always looking to improve! Below is a list of potential future features. If you're interested in a particular feature or have your own suggestions, please reach out via our Feature Request Form.

  • Customizable queries per user.
  • Enhanced input parsing for more forgiving input acceptance.
  • Custom timeout settings for better control.
  • Recursive replies for in-depth comment scraping.

๐Ÿ”ง Troubleshooting

  • Expensive Runs? Be sure you are not using language detection or Collect Detailed User Information, as these can greatly slow down runs. In addition, check the number of different inputs (search terms, URL's, profiles) you are using for each run, since otherwise Tweet-Flash can't process multiple inputs at the same time. Finally, check memory under options to ensure you are utilizing a reasonable memory amount. See more in the memory section
  • Missing Outputs? Make sure to check all fields, not overview. If you are getting less tweets than total_tweets for a user, this is normal because total_tweets includes retweets while profile scraping does not.
  • No Results? Make sure your parameters are not too narrow.
  • Unknown Image In Preview? It's likely that the image collected was from twitpic, which doesn't support previews.
  • An output type you need is missing? Send us a request via this form and we'll see what we can do.
  • Not Collecting All Comments? Sensitive or spam-filtered comments are not available for scraping. Replies to replies may not be scraped in a surface-level run. A recursive scraper is currently a work in progress to tackle this.
  • Not Getting New Tweets After a Large Amount? Check the log for "Logging is too fast, some lines were skipped". Consider scraping smaller total amounts if you hit this issue.

๐Ÿ“ Notes

  • Quacker Twitter-Scraper's Search Functionality: Please note that as of April 2023, Quacker Twitter-Scraper's search functionality has been affected due to Twitter's policy changes.
  • Testing Danielmilevski9 Twitter Search: At this time, we do not have the resources to fully test the speed of Danielmilevski9 Twitter Search, as it does not provide a RAM input option. We are open to accepting run data from contributors who can assist with this.
  • User Info Availability: While Quacker provides more user information than Tweet-Flash, rest assured that both tools include essential information such as follower count.
  • epcetx Twitter Search Scraper: This tool was not included in our comparison for the sake of brevity and is currently under maintenance.
  • Quacker Twitter-Scraper's Replies Depth Input: While Quacker Twitter-Scraper lists a replies depth input under its information, this is not an available option in the input interface, hence it wasn't included in our comparison.
  • Tweets Per Second: The reported tweets per second metrics have been rounded to the nearest integer for simplicity.
