You can schedule this spice to run daily & do the job in case you have multiple retweeters to extract about. You just have uploaded a CSV or link a Google sheet with post URLs. We will show to automate this task endlessly in the below steps, read on.

How to Extract Retweeters of a Tweet using TexAu?

Step 1: Create TexAu account & authenticate Twitter Auth Token

Once your account is set up and you have completed the onboarding, visit the Spice page. TexAu acts on your behalf on Twitter to run this automation. TexAu is the safest automation platform on the web, it uses your Twitter Auth Token to authenticate as you to run this automation. We never ask for your login credentials. To make filling session cookies easier, you can use the TexAu Chrome extension. This process only requires 2 clicks.

  1. Download TexAu Extension for Chrome here: TexAu Chrome Extension [Used and loved by over 4000+ customers]

  2. Refresh your automation page and click on the Get Cookie button.

In case if you are not using Google Chrome, check this guide on how to get cookies manually from your browser. We are working hard to bring our extension to all the major browsers very soon. Also, it's always better to use the desktop app. You wouldn't need to purchase a proxy if you're using our desktop app.

Step 2: Enter the Tweet URL of the tweet you want to extract retweeters of

If you just have one tweet URL to extract from, enter that in the respective field. You're here to do it for multiple posts & do that in a matter of minutes. If you have multiple posts to extract retweeters from, upload a CSV or link a Google Sheet.

Step 3: Upload the CSV or paste Google sheet URL

If you have a CSV, simply upload it from your PC. If you have a Google Sheet, there are some extra steps.

  • First paste the Google sheet's URL.
  • Either get the session cookie or use our chrome extension to do it with the click of a button. You can also create variables to avoid entering Twitter_Auth Token again & again. Here's a guide to creating variables on TexAu.
  • Input the column containing the Tweet URLs. Make sure you choose the right column for successful execution.

  • If you have purchased a proxy (you will have to add a proxy to your account) make sure you toggle the option. Furthermore, if you're executing on a desktop, you don't have to worry about the proxy.

For the final touch, make sure you have set the sheet as public (as shown below) so the TexAu can access it.

Step 3: Start execution or schedule the automation

Clicking on the Extract Retweeters button will immediately start the execution. Unless you have multiple tweets to extract Retweeters from, it would hardly take 2-3 minutes to execute this script.

Scheduling the automation will give you additional points to control the execution. You can choose specific days of the week or month, specific time daily. You can even set a specific start & end time of the execution.

The advantage of automating the whole process is that you don't have to actively sit in front of your PC while TexAu does its job. But make sure you have a proxy if you choose to run the spice on our cloud servers.

Step 4: Download execution results to your local PC

Once you click on Extract Retweeters you will see an execution window at the bottom of your screen, that would look as shown below:
