l  Software

We installed two softwares, Twitter-to-PDF and Archivist. Both of them can download tweets from twitter and export the results to a TXT file which is good for our WordCount project.

4)      Problems faced:

l  In fact,  a large amount of text posts from twitter will be good for analysis. But unfortunately we can only download a 227KB file. It is too small. We will use new software to fix this problem.

5)      Next week’s goals:

·         Use new software to fix the problem in downloading.
