  1. mixed your code with the following code together with another user dor@tehexploa at blackhatworld.com – im relatively new to the world of scraping but your blog has helped immensly, probably not the neatest of code but works for now….

    obviously this script is just for educational purposes, as actually emailing any emails gathered would be considered spam and in some places illegal we all know spam is bad so dont do it as you could be punished by big hefty fines!

    [code]
    <?php
    //set # of pages (5) to scrape
    for($i=1;$i
    [/code]

  2. For those who haven’t played with advanced search on twitter, add &rpp=50 to the end of the search string (rpp = results per page)

    And yes, it can be extended to 1000, 10000, etc ;)

    Shhhhhh

  3. This is a great tool for spammers to get emails. Even though its illegal many spammers still email emails they acquire by scraping websites.

  4. Will you people PLEASE stop spamming people. Does it turn you on when you send spam or something?! Get a girlfriend if that’s the case.

    I never reply or click links in spam emails, and I will stick to that plan. If you want to advertise a product or service, do it PROPERLY. There’s hundreds of places online that you can promote it cheaply. Sending spam is just wrong.

    Fucking idiots.

  5. Thanks to share such awesome tool. I just love tweeting and it will help me lot.
    I found your blog while searching on Google.

  6. really great.. ok it does work on xamp but i would put different query’s like names coz it give me the same results

    thanks

  7. Thanks for drawing my attention to this issue. It could be really very bad if spammers can grab emails. I really don’t like to treat spammers.

  8. Who cares if you can get e-mails off of twitter. What really matters is getting target followers

  9. I definitely don’t like spam, and hope that e-mail and other web clients continue to make this practice increasingly difficult for spammers.

  10. so what do I do, just upload it to my server and execute via url?

  11. Twitter’s influence on not just SEO but everything else, since then has come such a long way, it has to be said.
