Find Twitter post from a screenshot!
It works in 4 simple stages:
- You upload a screenshot of a twitter post
- Text is pulled from the screenshot using OCR (I can't install pytesseract on repl.it so I'm using a free API, sorry if you get rate-limited)
- A simple algorithm I wrote finds the most identifiable chunks of text
- We search google for the results. Either you are redirected to the original tweet (works best if the tweet is popular, and sometimes just fails anyway) or, if you get rate-limited by Google, you are given a link to the search results where you can select the tweet manually
Give it a try!
