Hi Anna,

VOSON (Virtual Observatory for the Study of Online Networks) will do 
what you want.  It is available as both a web application (VOSON 
System) and a plugin to NodeXL (http://nodexl.codeplex.com) which is 
an Excel 2007/2010 template for social network analysis.  Information 
about the tools and research can be found here: 
http://voson.anu.edu.au.  We are now signing up accounts here: 

Other commonly-used web crawlers that I'm aware of are SocSciBot 
(http://socscibot.wlv.ac.uk/) and Issuecrawler
