This unofficial Python library is for use with the Twitter API. The library includes a command-line tool that allows one to receive and send tweets through an IRC bot and access several types of twitter data. The Command-line Tool allows users to view their tweets, follow/unfollow friends, and view the public timeline. In addition, the twitter-log command will send all your tweets to a simple text file. The twitter-archive and twitter-follow commands will log all the tweets ever sent by a user and all the followers a user has, respectively. Extensive documentation and code examples are available at the project website.
So and So is now following you on Twitter. Who? How did they find me? Why might I want to follow back? That's been a common bit of internal dialogue for me lately. Often the answer lies in our mutual friends or followers. Social networks like LinkedIn and Facebook make this easy. Not so with Twitter, which is why I was excited to find Intersect.
The 600 million numbers that Truecaller has in its directory have been collected via crowd-sourcing. Truecaller’s users can share their contacts and in return they get access to search in the collaborative database. Thanks to this collaborative data solution, the directory is growing and being updated continuously. It also contains numbers that no other directories have, e.g. pre-paid phones.
