One people have many social medias, for example Lara De Silva have Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube Accounts. How we can find all his social accounts ? the answer is Sherlock. With this tool you can find social network usernames from many social media. Shelock will grab accounts with same usernames and show the link to go there. You don’t have to search one by one, but yeah you have to confirm wich accounts matches with that person by yourself.

contributing to Sherlock, then Thank You!
creating a pull request with new development, please run the tests to ensure
that all is well. It would also be a good idea to run the tests before starting
development to distinguish problems between your environment and the Sherlock
The following is an example of the command line to run all the tests for Sherlock. This invocation hides the progress text that Sherlock normally outputs, and instead shows the verbose output of the tests.
