Looks like my great idea of re-enabling the “Save as Excel” feature was a bad idea – as I just got additional clarification from Twitter that the only way I can export data is 1) if it is the actual user’s and if not 2) only the IDs.
Therefore, the “Save as Excel” will be removed tomorrow morning around 5:00 am ET. Sorry I got everyone excited…
I have toyed with the idea of just exporting IDs and giving you guys scripts to do the lookups – but the rate limits will kill anyone trying to do that to grab all the actual tweet text.
Don’t really know what else to do at this point…!
