Dedication I know. LOL.
Put @yosp or #ps4nodrm in search field. Made sure that all tweets were being displayed. Basically, kept scrolling down until the first tweet popped up regarding this (after the initial bonus round thread). Select all, copy to notepad to not copy the images and what not. Delete all text before the top most tweet.
Select all copy, paste in word.
Find all - whichever term (so for overall tweets to yosp, searched @yosp, for #ps4nodrm I'd put that in). Every single term matching it gets selected, cut, paste in another word document.
Find & replace that term in that document with whatever, and then the "replaced x amount of times" gives you the number of times that term was used. Reason why I did't post exact numbers is because some tweets post the hashtags multiple times.
Got to the point that I had to use multiple word documents to count the #ps4nodrm overall count due to the program I use not being able to fit in anymore characters (without any spaces in between) in the document.
Ahhh, you're insane good sir!
