you use the `--lang` option wrongly. Fails:

$ twitterscraper -bd 2015-01-01 -ed 2016-01-01 –lang en
usage: twitterscraper [-h] [-o OUTPUT] [-l LIMIT] [-a] [-c] [-u] [--lang LANG]
                      [-d] [-bd] [-ed] [-p]

Dear Sir/Madam,

I have been running twitterscraper yesterday with no real problems encountered. I came home and tried to run a twitterscraper command in cmd – without success.

It said the following for these arguments: -bd 2015-01-01 -ed 2016-01-01 –lang en unrecognised.
