To use this bot you need to register or log in first.

Frequently asked questions

In most cases, that’s because your settings are too strict. For example, consider ticking ‘Extract all tweets’ instead of ticking ‘Tweets with more than XXX likes/retweets’. Another reason may be that you’ve inserted a wrong Twitter account URL or an URL that doesn’t exist.

Once the bot is done scraping, open your job, click on the menu in the top right corner, and select the Excel or the CSV logo. This simple action will allow you to download tweets to Excel or CSV respectively and to save them to your computer. Other formats available for download include JSON and Google Sheets.
You can’t export tweets to PDF directly but you can do the following: download your data as an Excel file, open this file, go to the top menu, click on ‘File’, and select ‘Export as PDF’. Your tweets wil be saved to your computer in the PDF format.

Our tweet extractor was created using Python, yet you need no coding knowledge to use it.

Select the number of tweets to scrape, tune the filters, paste the link to your Twitter profile (e.g.: https://twitter.com/yourprofile), and launch the bot. All your tweets will be exported into a spreadsheet.
