This is an awesome project from WhiskeyTangoHotel.
Use the Raspberry PI to monitor Twitter for specific words or hashtags that are tweeted. Graphically display the results on a publicly viewable webpage.
If you are not interested in the build details and just want to see the result then take a look at this short video. We had the RasPI set up to monitor for a “Tektronix” or “Agilent” mention in any and every message Twitter receives.
The video shows an iPad tweeting the message “Tektronix and Agilent. RasPI HashVote Test”. Since this tweet contains both search words the RasPI is monitoring for, each counter gets incremented and the graph is updated.
