I have a pretty odd request but if someone could help me it would be greatly appreciated. I'm trying to archive comments on twitter but not just the comments themselves I also want to preserve the ability to hover over peoples nameand look at the bios of people commenting to be able to see the weird shit people write in there but i have found no way to do so. Even if I save the entire html of the site it doesn't work. Is there anything that can be used to accomplish this or is it practically impossible.

the data coming in from the hover boxes is retrieved through additional HTTP calls, you might be able to write a tool that records those but no typical tool like archive.md will do that

Thanks for responding I figured that this would be the case but wanted to ask in case I was wrong and since I'm not all that experienced at coding I think I will give up and just archive a few examples rather than the whole thing the effect will be about the same anyway

does that work for instagram too?
I've used JDownloader for Instagram albums before. If they're private, and you have access, it may even have the capability to access those if you enter your IG details in the account settings. You don't get comments, but, I don't know if the other available tools do that either.

for JDownloader, if you're an inpatient prick like I am, try this

  1. Create a .txt file in your directory and copy ffmpeg.exe to the same directory
  2. Copy the following to the text file: for %%a in ("*.m4a") do ffmpeg -i %%~na.mp4 -i %%a -vcodec copy -acodec copy %%~na-merged.mp4
  3. Save and close the file
  4. Change its extension to .bat
  5. Double click to execute
  6. Enjoy!
repeat for different formats like .ogg instead and etc.

Wouldn't using -u and -p with a yt login with appropriate age work too?
 

Interesting Hypothesis

The domain archive.fo is likely to be suspended by the registrar. Some tools/scripts may have hard-linked to it and will need updating (eg. python wrapper https://github.com/pastpages/archiveis will break, it also currently fails because of the domain redirect recently added).

This is a minor problem with using country TLDs from some shitty little country you would never have even heard of without them having a TLD.
