Analyzing Twitter Data with Python
March 5, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
There comes a time in every man’s life when he needs to make a choice. What library is best to do a particular job? What are the pros and cons of each choice, and how much time will it take to get good enough to use the libraries to fulfill the requirements of the project?
One man had to make that choice. That man’s name… is Omar Quimbaya. The task? Find tweets regarding new hacks and threat intelligence to scrape the URLs for ingestion into a larger threat hunting platform. The libraries? Tweepy and Twitterscraper. The due date? Last week.
In this talk, Omar will go into these two different libraries, how they helped him solve the problem in different ways, and some of the shortfalls with each approach. No one will ever be the same again.
As usual, we’ll have drinks and Pizza, so be sure to RSVP so we can have enough for everybody.
This month we’ll be meeting in the Geekdom Basement.
