howto get a list of twitter friends

Hi, 

I would like to get a list of my twitter friends  in KNIME. I can see there is a node for twitter followers, but not for friends. Is this possible?

Hi RAPosthumus,

At the moment KNIME Analytics Platform does not provide a specific node that helps to get the list of your twitter friends. You could try with the GET Request node and follow the instructions provided here https://dev.twitter.com/rest/reference/get/friends/list.

To add, KNIME Analytics Platform offers you also the possibility to retrieve detailed information on Twitter users such as their location, number of followers, and much more. This feature is offered by the Twitter Users node.The node requires a data table containing a column of Twitter user names as input and can be used in combination with the Twitter Search and Twitter Timeline nodes.

Hope this helps,

Cheers,

Vincenzo

 

Thanks for your reply Vincenzo.
I had a workaround using R.
