Searching for Tweets with IronPython

Posts by Saveen Reddy have featured regularly on this blog, most recently his series of posts on automating Visio from Powershell and IronPython. He is back, and this time he is having fun with the Twitter Search API, using IronPython to search for tweets.

This simple example shows you how simple it is to search for tweets using Twitter’s Search API.

Key techniques demonstrated in this sample code

  • Using System.Net.WebClient to download a file
  • Searching for nodes in System.Xml using namespaces
  • Simple ATOM-feed parsing
