Archiving whole result of a Twitter Hashtag serach
Is there a data processing tool that allow to countinuously download the result of a Hashtag search in https://search.twitter.com, or that just allow to download the whole tweets of the specific hashtag (data scraper)? 'The Archivist Desktop' is the only one I founded, it allow to export the whole result to CSV Format and it's a paying one. Is there a free alternative?
I think your best bet is using a service such as GNIP or Datasift. Both have Twitter streams and their purpose in life is delivering data for analytics. Datasift has the ability to create a dataset which can be downloaded. I haven't tried it, but it should work for your purpose.
