Say hello to twistori

April 29th, 2008

Amy and I launched twistori yesterday. Read more about it on Amy’s blog: love & hate: from knuckle tattoos to the internet’s emotional pulse with Twistori.

Technically, it’s pretty simple, a small ruby script keeps a local SQLite database filled with new matching tweets, and generates JSON files for consumption by the single-page site. Some Prototype and script.aculo.us sugar then combine it all into what has been called a twitter thing Kevin Rose likes.

Have fun on twistori!
