Find Twitter post from a screenshot!

This is my Twitter Screenshot Finder

direct link to webpage

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!
