The Game is On: A Deep Dive into Sherlock, the OSINT Tool for Social Media Stalking—Err, Research

Sherlock is a Python-based tool that allows you to search for usernames across over 300 social media platforms.

Ah, Sherlock Holmes: a name that conjures up images of foggy London streets, a pipe-smoking detective, and the thrilling chase of clues. If Sir Arthur Conan Doyle were alive today, he might find himself rather intrigued by a different kind of Sherlock—a tool designed for the modern-day sleuth navigating the labyrinthine world of social media.

Meet Sherlock, an Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) tool that can find social media accounts linked to a particular username across a multitude of platforms. The tool is as reliable as a Swiss watch and as versatile as 007 at a hacker conference. Ready for a little "Elementary, my dear Watson" in cyberspace? Let's delve in.
