TweetWish – Your wishes from twitter

Published on April 11th, 2009

It’s a single page site displaying all tweets that mention “I wish”. It gets new tweets from Twitter every 10 seconds. Click the refresh button in your browser to view new tweets.


TweetWish.com – Your wishes from twitter.

I’ve used jQuery to add visual effects like the tweets fading in and out on hover, the stars on the background and the alignments of the tweets (adding a class to every odd tweet). The tweets themselves are called from a custom query to Twitter Advanced Search and parsed and displayed with Simple Pie, a RSS/Atom feed parser running on PHP.

I might improve the site by loading new tweets with ajax so the site will auto-refresh itself.
