Never out of questions! Python + Twitter = Magic
I love getting random questions from a service called plinky.com.
One day I wanted to get all of the questions in one file on my computer rather than going page by page on their website.
So to make use of the programming I learned in school, I wrote a simple program to traverse Twitter pages and get the data for me, in this case the prompts that plinky.com posts on Twitter.
Below is the Python code that will get all the statuses from a user “plinkyprompts” and save them all into a file called “prompts.txt”:
for pg in range (1,40):
f = urllib2.urlopen(‘http://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.xml?screen_name=plinkyprompts&page=’+ str(pg))
u = f.read()
doc = xml.dom.minidom.parseString(u)
node = doc.documentElement
texts = doc.getElementsByTagName("status")
txts = 
for txt in texts:
titleObj = txt.getElementsByTagName("text")
for i in txts:
indx = i.find(‘http’)
if (indx != -1) :
tmpstr = i[:indx]
file = open("prompts.txt", ‘w’)
And here are the contents of the resulting file :
