Live Twitter Stream Using Raspberry Pi And NodeJS #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Live Twitter stream using Raspberry pi and NodeJS. via bitpi.co
What’s the Purpose?
The main use case was I wanted to see some geofenced Twitter tweets and/or some relevant keyword terms. Getting a bird’s eye view of some relevant tweets seemed very interesting to me.
What do we need?
With this tutorial we will need the following:
Twitter Streaming API access
NodeJS (Install Here)
First we need to have access to Twitter’s Streaming API. For that you will need to create an “Application” in Twitter’s dev website. You can create a new one by logging in and visiting Create an Application – Twitter. Supply an Application name, Description and Website. Then agree to the terms.
