If anyone wants users data from the last 50000 toots on Fosstodon, it can be downloaded here: pbanks.net/personal/data/Fosst

@pbanks have you published the script or tool to get this data? I enjoyed your analyses!

@yarmo Thank you! I just used the Mastodon.py library. Using it to connect with the server is detailed here github.com/halcy/Mastodon.py
If you want to make requests, here's the commands I used pbanks.net/2021.html#pulling-u

@pbanks
The text of the toots is not included, only "headers".

@rudolf Yeah, I had no use for it at the moment and the files would be prohibitively large to host on my vps. But it's quite easy to pull yourself using the Mastodon.py library with the Mastodon.timeline() funtion mastodonpy.readthedocs.io/en/s
