First attempt at querying Twitter API (had to learn encodings and stuff). Written as a Windows Form application in C#.


Automatically downloads tweets. Input is a list of user_ids and then it gets to work downloading all tweets and crawling followers for new ids to download tweets from.

Can save downloaded json files to disk, or parse it and insert into MSSQL db. (Either insert into db right after downloading it, or after all the json files have been downloaded have another program that goes through the files, parses it and then inserts in to db.
