TwitterMatrix: Tweets as a Color Source

Posted April 16, 2013 by Chris

“I found a nice article on using the twitter search API in python and used it as a base for my script. Here’s what it does: first, it searches for the string ‘my favorite color’ and in practice finds around .1-5 tweets a minute…the script simply cleans up the tweet, removes any strange character like ‘#’ and compares every word of the tweet with my lookup table. The first color string in the tweet wins.”
