Hi Rod

I'd also suggest Gettr, which has an undocumented API surprisingly easy to tap into.
For example, here is a random user's posts:

The same user's followers:

You can retreive only 20 posts/users per call, changing the offset to 20, 40 etc. allows you to go down the list.

Hope this helps

Objet : [Air-L] Looking for Right Wing and Extremist Forums for Web Scraping

Does anyone know of a web forum (or even an open-to-the-public Facebook or
Reddit page) where Right and Far-Right politics are being discussed? These
are remarkably hard to find! I am looking for spaces that have been in
operation for at least a few years so I can chart changes over time.
