Features

  • Deep search: Instead of using the Twitter Search API, which only only goes back 6-9 days, t search fetches up to 3,200 tweets via the REST API and then checks each one against a regular expression.
  • Multi-threaded: Whenever possible, Twitter API requests are made in parallel, resulting in faster performance for bulk operations.
  • Designed for Unix: Output is designed to be piped to other Unix utilities, like grep, comm, cut, awk, bc, wc, and xargs for advanced text processing.
  • Generate spreadsheets: Convert the output of any command to CSV format simply by adding the –csv flag.
  • 95% C0 Code Coverage: Well tested, with a 2.5:1 test-to-code ratio.
