Data scraping my Twitter account

I have global connections and some with many connections, over 100,000 so my datascrape for me was the best source of information. Most of the tweets had links that I randomly accessed if they weren't tweeted widely and found great references for Smart City Conferences to be held and podcasts or videos from those already held. But the greatest info came from finding out how popular a crowdfunding idea was for a Smart Citizen Kit which is/was really rather crude but is working. So I've decided my idea could actually work to get funded. Twitter is best in act as a source of data or these kinds of new things happening if one is paying attention. It's not the obvious stuff. But I spend time at it because I am a trend forecaster and doing this type of research is something that works. However, getting involved with this class was the first best step I've made wrt Smart Cities and what makes them so.
