Scrape Twitter hashtags
#1
In the attempt to find better words, I created a scraper for Twitter hashtags.
Personally, I find hashtags pretty interesting: they reflect words and "way of saying" that could be easily used for password. Moreover they are quite long, so they can give some suggestions for password candidates that are out of the reach of brute force attacks.
We could achieve the same result by combining dictionary words, but I think this is a faster method; we know for sure that such combination was used at least once.

Now, enough talking, you can find the repo here:

After some quick test (straight attack, no fancy rules), I was able to find words like this:
Code:
washingtonredskins
nostringsattached
popgoestheweasel
thelittleprince
ranchocucamonga
youarenotalone
eastsidemarios
rainraingoaway
genieinabottle
foodforthought

Again, suggestions and comments are more than welcome!
