   Deen,

   Pulling data off is possible via DiscoverText with paid Professional or
   Enterprise accounts. Now we also have an API that you can use for
   pulling off everything (except Twitter data) including raw data, meta
   data, as well as human coding and machine classification scores.

   Under the Twitter ToS, you are permitted to "save as" .csv or XML to
   use teh raw data in other applications. Using the DiscoverText API, you
   can also get just the Twitter ID for individual tweets.

   Great job with this Devin; good to see 140kit back in action. But it's
   so frustrating that I can't pull the data out and play with it myself!
   On the other hand I suppose we can't blame Twitter for trying to
   monetize their APIs; they're not a charity after all... ~DEEN

   [5]140kit.com, which was a site where a researcher could throw in a
   term, and tweets including that term would be automatically collected.
   At that point, you would be able to download the raw data or run our
   on-site analytics.

   we don't have money (its just me and another programmer) to pour into
   this thing.
