Python Twitter Tools 1.9.0

Hot off the presses, it’s Python Twitter Tools 1.9.0!

This is mostly a bugfix release, with compatibilty with Python 3.3 (currently in beta). But there are some keen new features:

  • compress connections with gzip, leading to a 5x (or better) data transfer rate (thanks to jameslafa).
  • follow redirects in the twitter-archiver (no more nasty t.co URLs) (thanks to blob79)
  • invert the order of tweets that span over 140 chars, so they appear in order in the cmd line tool (thanks Lacrymology).
  • many other fixes and documentation updates

As always you can

pip install twitter

Or download the relase from PyPI.
