How to mine intelligence from twitter?

The Internet is the largest data trove in human history. This data repository is so vast that companies and scientists struggle to understand and manage it.

We can mine the data from many different sources, such as social media, search engines, geographic information, statistical data, think tank information, etc. When these data are combined with other data from multiple sources, clear and valuable datasets can be obtained. These data are very useful in investigation or target reconnaissance.

One of the sources of large amounts of data is Twitter, a particularly popular social media platform. It has a large number of users in the world, that millions of people tweet every day, including politicians, celebrities and business people. Important information and opinions can be gathered from these tweets.
