Description

From President Donald Trump’s Twitter account to fake news — social media platforms have become a major source for news.

This demo session will give journalists the ability to harvest information from the social web in structured and automated ways. Participants will learn how to collect information from Facebook pages and Twitter accounts via scraping and APIs and turn them into spreadsheets.

To get the most out of this demo: Attendees should have a basic grasp of programming concepts but do not need to be proficient in coding. Attendees should have their own Twitter and Facebook accounts and create app IDs for API access in advance of the session. If you want to follow along in this demonstration, make sure you have Python, pip and git installed on your laptop.
