Thanks Corion. We need to scroll down the page of twitter in-order to get the next set of 20 tweets, Can we replicate the Scroll down process in WWW::Mechanize::Firefox or, is there any alternate way? Thanks in advance.

    There is no direct way with WWW::Mechanize::Firefox. But you can run arbitrary Javascript through it, so you can use that to scroll the page down.

    Personally, I would look at what function gets called to load more information.

    Also, you are certainly aware of the Twitter API and/or Net::Twitter?
