This is the place for queries that don't fit in any of the other categories.
For my masterthesis I have to collect a huge amount of Tweets. It is told me that I have to use a Python script in order to succeed in collecting the correct data. Unfortunately I do not have the skills to write a Python script.
I hope that someone can help me because I am searching for a solution for three months now. Unfortunately the data cannot be collected with a simple search query in Twitter. The following data has to be collected:
There are 216 persons of whom I need to collect the tweets from november 2011 and the tweets of november 2012.
I have a file in which the 216 persons are specified.
If someone could help me I would be very grateful!

Hello Lieke, welcome to the forums and Python. So you want somebody to write code for you? But you did not post in "Jobs"? Do you want to learn how to code it yourself, or just use it later? How do you want to go forward here? I don't quite understand it.

In three months, you could do it manually without using Python. Who has told you you need Python? There's a REST Twitter API that you can use with any language or without a programming language (say just wget + shell).
