SNS Scrape

SNS Scrape is a scraping library in Python for scraping social media sites.

I tried this out in this Google Colab. Does not work with Instagram or Facebook (at least the accounts I tried), but can be used for Twitter.

The first time I used it, I tried it with @realDonaldTrump but that account is now permanently suspended and tweets are no longer available...

So instead, here are the tweets since the start of 2021 from Andrew Ng :-)

2021-01-14 00:57:40+00:00: Democracy has taken a lot of damage recently. Last Wednesday was a nadir for the U.S., and the path back will be long and hard. But I believe the country has reached a turning point. Here're my thoughts on the role AI can play to support democracy.

2021-01-06 22:31:31+00:00: U.S. democracy is going through a dark day today with the Capitol building breached. But we will get through this, democracy will prevail, and we will learn from this  and strengthen our nation against future assaults. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

2021-01-01 20:06:43+00:00: Happy New Year, friends! πŸŽ‰ 2020 was a tough year for many, so lets make sure to build, support each other, and lift everyone up in 2021.
