Hi folks - I'm a user rather than a developer so not even sure I should be here. If I need to head off somewhere else let me know where but my attempts to find what I need on the bit of the Twitter site dealing with APIs has foundered on jargon (theirs) and ignorance (mine).
What I'd like to do is download data to an Excel spreadsheet about a sub-set of Twitter users on a regular (probably monthly) basis. For each of the set of users (about 250 at present, maximum of 500/660 as more of them - they're a finite number of public organisations - start tweeting) I would like to export on a set day each period the four counts shown on the user profile i.e. No. Tweets No. following No. followers No. listed. Once I've got those four data items into a spreadsheet I intend to produce tabular and graphical summaries of activity for individual users and for the whole set of users, showing trends over time. I could obviously visit each user's profile and cut and paste the data but life is short. Is there something that will allow me to do this automatically without becoming the technical expert I will never be. My thanks for any help received.
