In the third week of the course, we focus on how to collect data from Twitter’s REST APIs. In this session we follow closely the script provided by Tony Ojeda, Sean Patrick Murphy, Benjamin Bengfort, Abhijit Dasgupta in the first part of Chapter 10 of their book Practical Data Science Cookbook (pp. 307-327). As background reading for the Python code used in this example serves Lutz (2013).
