Christy Warden (All Code)
All of my code is located in bulk(E:)/McNair/Projects/TwitterCrawler/Christy Code
Description: Autofollower is an incomplete project which will take an initial seed name and then crawl through twitter, finding relevant accounts to follow and unfollow those who are unresponsive. This is an offshoot of Twitter_Follower_Finder.py and an attempt to automate the entire process that that program completes.
Status: Working but needs improvement
Description: Automate links to a dummy acct that follows the seed list of news sources given to me. It updates a twitter feeds and looks for a regex in each tweet. If found, the tweet is retweeted onto the dummy account. The hope is that eventually we can specify our regex/standards/following enough to produce a feed of tweets that can be used on our own account. The two major problems with the code at this point is that it sometimes has an error when it tries to retweet a tweet that it has already retweeted and that the content is not targeted enough.
Description: This read in data of bills that had been passed and filtered a different set of data on Bills containing innovation regexes based on if they were passed.
Description: Goes through a directory of Bills and counts the relevant words in each one plus gets info on the congress and Bill number. Output to a CSV file.
Description: Pulls and outputs this information for an input twitter handle: fieldnames = ["handle", "buzzwords", "retweetscount", "retweetavg", "favoritecount", "favoriteavg", "year", "following", "followers", "followedtime", "source", "followback" ]
Description: Crawls an input twitter handle, finds their most relevant tweets and crawls the retweeters of those tweets. Follows them if they meet certain threshold requirements.
