Have you ever wondered how some people succeed in getting thousands of followers on Twitter without being really famous? Have you ever wanted to get the e-mail address of a person on LinkedIn who isn't connected to you? Did you ever have to keep track of social media metrics (number of followers on Twitter, Klout score, etc...) manually, and wondered if there wasn't a way to automate that process?
Well, I have, and being a developer, I have looked for way to achieve all of the above programmatically, using the APIs provided by these social media services. In this book, I am going to share a number of tips and tricks, along with Java code you can use to experiment with your own social media accounts.
