dhIMG Twitter

[ISSUE] (7th June) Thank you all for the emails, Tweets and comments (below) that v1.8 is no longer working. It seems Twitter has finally terminated the method I used to use to allow my program to scrape images, and the method they're currently using at the moment seems to be protected. An update like this may take me quite some time to find another work-around, but I will continue to try my best.

Once again, thank you, and thank you for using dhIMG Twitter. I never thought in a million years it would prove to be such a popular program for people.

Thanks for all the messages from everyone that uses this program regarding how it was no longer working. I've updated it and tested it (had someone else test it too), it should now work. The reason for the previous versions not working was a security policy change on Twitter's side.

Note: I have tried my best to keep the framework required to run the program as low as possible, as to cater for those of you that're still on earlier Operating Systems, however this update requires the .NET Framework 4.6, which means if you're on Microsoft Windows 98, 2000, or XP, this program will no longer work - it will only work on Microsoft Windows Vista and anything newer (so W7, W8 and W10).

Changes in v1.8

Hey kibajra,

I've just tested it and it's working. Please make sure you're not trying to use this on a 'locked'/'private' account, as it will not work.

I love this program but when trying to download images from an account the program always stops before 1000.

It doesn't download every image. Could you check the program? There are many images being left out.

Heads up; I think Twitter may have made a change to the site which is affecting the downloader.

I put the name in, number it to 4000, choose a directory to put the files, and hit run; I now notice the app is downloading files A LOT slower than usual. Sometimes it even gets hung up and I have to click cancel for it to skip the file and continue. It was working fine a few days ago but now it's borderline unusable. You do some fine work, Mr. Dale Hay, I implore you to please look into the matter.

If I may be so bold as to make a suggestion: could you please possibly make an option for the downloader to download files from newest to oldest, rather than download the oldest ones first? I need to download quite a few Twitter accounts and it's tedious work waiting for it to download files that I already have just so I can put the new ones in. This also makes sorting files harder too because it redownloads files that I then deleted because I didn't want them, so I have to trudge through and delete all the ones I don't like, again. Some kind of index file or such that updates by downloading to the last file previously downloaded and then stops downloading, that would be ideal. Please consider it, Mr. Hay.

By the way, will we ever please get .gif support in our downloads as well? Thank you for taking the time to read this, have a good day.

Twitter probably changed something again. It says "Fetched 0 Images" when you click Find Images

Bad news, Downloader doesn't work now; twitter probably updated again and broke something. I put the name in and choose directory, then click 'find images...' then it tells me 'finding...' and then says it 'fetched 0 images.' I tried this with multiple twitter accounts and they all gave that same result. Please fix. Thank you.
