THIS IS A NEW AND IMPROVED VERSION OF THE TWITTER STREAMING APP.

It no longer requires python, or other usages to get twitter data.

 

And using new API access actually opens a door to twitter vs requesting data on a refresh cycle.

PROGRAMMING FOR PEOPLE 2018

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Overview:

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

This is a more advanced twitter streaming application that listens for active keywords rather than polling twitter for data.

 

It makes use of the twitter4J library (included in download) to go and search for the defined keyword(s).

 

In this application tweets are constantly gathered as and when a define keyword(s) is detected in the globally available twitter feed.

 

 

You will need a twitter developer account, and your own consumer and access keys to make this work.

 

This application does not include an implementation for this method but has a function blank at the very bottom of the page to use and implement however you want.

It currently receives the status object of the active tweet for you to manipulate.

 

 

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Requirements:

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

This is built using processing 3.4

Available freely at processing.org

 

It also uses the java library twitter4j (twitter4j.org), but the formatted libraries are included in this download to place where required:

 

The library goes into:

“../user/Documents/Processing/Libraries/<create new folder>/library/4 files with punctuation removed go here”

 

Also place a copy of the 4 files (punctuation removed) into:

“../<file for streaming sketch>/code/<paste here>

 

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Usage:

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

 

Enter you consumer and access keys into the marked fields at the top of the program.

 

Select you keyword(s) and run the processing sketch.

 

Optional: implement functionality into the useData function at bottom of screen.

Interaction via twitter (processing keyword listener)
