[BangPypers] Collecting Trending Topics, Social Media sentiments from Twitter/Facebook

Hey Jins,

Twython for Twitter and facebook-sdk for Facebook are two decent
client libraries in Python.

Writing a script for collecting public tweets from Twitter with any
hashtag is straight forward with Twython. However, facebook has
recently deprecated public content search from their api. So you might
need authentication from these "members" to collect their updates.

Hope this helps.
