Indexing your liked tweets into ElasticSearch

Ever thought you’d want to actually get some value out of your twitter likes? I am using it as bookmarking service and as a drop in replacement for “read it later”.

Sadly the platform does not offer any easy way to find your likes again. To retrieve my Likes from the platform initially I use this IFTTT Recipe to add it into a spreadsheet, which I eventually download as a comma-separated CSV.

Since this saves the link to the original tweet, it is possible to bulk retrieve them at a later point.

This is what my project will do. It is written in go and puts all your saved likes into an ElasticSearch.
