Twitter API by Joaquin Keller

Joaquin Keller ( @joaquinkeller ) will present a workshop on the Twitter API, oriented to digital humanities potential uses.

This workshop will happen on march 23th, 7pm at CRI

The idea is to catch the stream of all tweets (~ 100 millions daily) and process them to extract the hashtag zeitgeist, ie the most popular hashtags of the moment. This program consisting of few dozen lines of python will be modified during the workshop to filter out and processing the tweets according to the attendants suggestions.
