Capturing Twitter Profiles & Tweets

There are two sections to a Twitter user’s profile that could be relevant, depending on your use case: Tweets and Tweets & replies

  1. Tweets: The Tweets tab shows the tweets and re-tweets that the user originated. It does not show replies to their own tweets, replies to other users’ tweets, or tweets that begin by @-tagging another user. Twitter limits the feed to the last 3,000 tweets.
  2. Tweets & Replies: This shows all the tweets from the user, plus replies to their own tweets and replies to other people’s tweets. It does not show the tweets that the user was replying to, only the tweets that the person sent. Twitter limits the feed to the last 3,000 tweets.

The capture process for either Tweets or Tweets & replies is the same. We find that clients more frequently want Tweets & replies rather than just Tweets. 

To capture all Tweets or Tweets and Replies

  1. Navigate to the Twitter profile and select the tab—Tweets or Tweets & replies—that you’d like to capture.
  2. Once the page is loaded, click “Scroll” in the Page Vault menu bar to scroll and load all the content to the bottom of the profile. Note that Twitter limits the feed to the last 3,000 tweets.
  3. Once the scroll is complete, click “Capture” and make selections as you would for a regular webpage capture. The capture will save to the selected folder in your Portal.

To capture a single Tweet and its replies

  1. Click on the tweet you want to capture. It will load in its own page.
  2. Once the page is loaded, click “Scroll” in the Page Vault menu bar to scroll and load all the content to the bottom of the profile.
  3. Depending on the number of replies, Twitter may stop auto-loading replies—you will then have to manually click "Show more replies" and click "Scroll" again. Repeat until you have reached the end of the replies.
  4. Once the scroll is complete, click “Capture” and make selections as you would for a regular webpage capture. The capture will save to the selected folder in your Portal.
