I’ve always enjoyed the site twistori because it is such an interesting experience to watch the random connected together.
Since I’ve been on somewhat of a Twitter roll this holiday weekend, I decided to see if I could make a similar experience for Scouting related tweets. I think it’s pretty neat so here it is:
Of course, I say this is an experiment for a few of reasons:
- It may cause a pretty large strain on the server if a bunch of people use it.
- Caching tweets takes up a *lot* of space on the server.
- I haven’t really tested it anywhere except Firefox and Safari, so it might not work at all.
So there’s a decent chance that someday this won’t work anymore. Until then, here’s what it can do! 🙂
Choose from five different “channels” by clicking the appropriate word across the top. Once the tweets start flowing, you can move your mouse over one for more options. If you click “visit” you go to the original tweet. If you click “flag as awesome” then you just voted for that tweet being worth keeping. If you click “remove this tweet” you’re saying there’s something wrong with that tweet — maybe it’s inappropriate or it has weird characters. Once you click “remove this tweet” you’ll never see it again!
All the links inside each tweet should also work, you just have to move your mouse over them for them to become underlined.
So, play around with it and let me know if you run into bugs or if there’s a feature you’d like to have added! 😀
