Twistori: Telling a story with Tweets and Script.aculo.us

Category: Prototype, Scriptaculous, Showcase


Twistori is a fun little site created by Amy Hoy and Thomas Fuchs. As you would expect, design is a key part of the application, and the Prototype / Script.aculo.us combo pull off the work.

The site pulls in live data on various topics (love, hate, think, believe, feel, wish) via the real-time twitter search tool summize.

In related Twitter news, I created a Greasemonkey script Twitter Translate that auto-translates foreign text to your language inside Twitter.

i love twistori. i hate that such elegant ideas aren’t more populous. i think I’ll leave it on all day. i believe I shall also load it tomorrow, and the next day. i feel inspired. i wish some dimwit 15-year old hadn’t nabbed my usual name on twitter already…
