Hello all I am currently working on doing some research and was utilizing the twitter api to collect information. I wrote some code to query for specific tweets in python and would like to save the results to a text file, yet my code is only returning the last tweet of the tweets returned can anyone tell me how I may correct this and what's wrong? The following is a sample of my code in Python only saving the last tweet instead of all of the returned tweets:

u = urllib2.urlopen('http://search.twitter.com/search.json?geocode=29.762778,-95.383056,10.0mi&page=1&rpp=10') datares = json.load(u) pprint.pprint(datares) for tweet in datares['results']: print tweet['text'] archive=tweet['text'] unicodedata.normalize('NFKD', archive).encode('ascii','ignore') with codecs.open('HTXtweets.txt',mode='w', encoding='utf-8',errors='replace') as cache: cache.write(archive) cache.closed

You're opening the file in each iteration of the loop through the results. This recreates it from scratch each time.

You should open it before the loop - you don't need to close it at the end, as that will happen automatically when the with statement finishes.
