Download Twitter profile content

Post by Grandizer »

I am trying to grab pics of a users twitter account. (LucyMoss123)
I used the template, saw the template only grabbed *.jp*, added the multiple of other media that might be there and downloaded. The first time, before I added the added extensions, I ended up with 37 files, after adding the other extensions, 87.
I got ZERO of her pictures. I got a lot of crappy X icons, twitter light and such instead.

I am logged in using my user and pass.

If you are getting "crappy X icons, twitter light and such" - you are not using the template most likely. After pasting your starting URL (which I guess is httрs://twitter.com/LucyMoss123 ) click the [ Next ] button to make sure the correct template is selected:

Then you can click the [ Finish ] button. After that you must see the built-in browser window with your Starting URL opened in it.

If you are not signed in to your Twitter account in the builtin browser - do it now and close the built-in browser window. Then restart the project (there is a [ Restart ] button in Extreme Picture Finder).

The built-in browser will open again and now you have to see the account content. You must wait until you see the actual account content (photos, videos) and only after that click the [ Continue download ] button.

And here is the result I received after following the above steps:

I thought I was using the profile, note the one above the one you show selected, (ver 7)...
I was only interested in the media options.
I thought the tweets would have been text related entries, where as the media would have been pics, videos and such.
I will try your method now though.
Thank you for the information.

As you can see in the above screenshot, we have templates to download profile tweets, profile [ Media ] section, and profile [ Likes ] section. So you have to choose the correct Starting URL and a corresponding template. Here are all the Twitter templates:

Twitter templates

Please read the description of each template to see what it can be used for.

So I did do what you showed me above, a few things happened.
1) I got 243 files of media various types, all are fine.
2) I tried duplicating the same thing with another "model" I follow and I got nothing but the template did not work message. Which I then saw that I got a Twitter message saying there was a problem and to retry, I think the program kicked some sort of twitter block in on my profile as even going in with my browser I saw that message, I relogged in and had to verify myself and things seem to work.
3) I still can not grab another person following the identical instructions I used for Lucy.
4) I see Lucy has new photos, but when I run the update option, I do net get any new files.
5) I wonder if I am semi blocked as I previously used another program until it stopped working a few weeks ago.

Yesterday a new version of the program was released and the main thing about this release is the improved Twitter support. So, you'll need to download and install the most recent version of the program:

Download Extreme Picture Finder

Then you'll need to install new versions of all Twitter templates.

All new Twitter templates have a delay between the downloads and a suggested number of simultaneous connections of 3 to prevent a "semi-ban". Using these settings I was able to grab all media from huge accounts with thousands of files.
