    Not making this thread to talk about the subject, but to talk about the software running it. How are they doing this? It's pretty cool. Basically it shows people tweeting a certain phrase or word. I would love to make a xenforo page listing the tweeting of certain phrases related to my site.

    Contact the devs.


    Twitter provides (used to any way) a good API system where you could pull tweets by keywords. I'd imagine this does that, and add some really nice styling to it and a little of Ajax in the mix.

    This might be a good start here: https://dev.twitter.com/docs/api/1/get/search

    No. If you click on a box it sends you to the tweet it came from.

    'No Homo' is a East Harlem, New York slang popularized by the rapper Cam'Ron. That site was posted on a rap forum I visit.

    Have you heard of 'U Mad?' He popularized that term too.

    8thos, that is pretty cool. Any idea how it was accomplished?

    I'm aware of that but I meant how did you manage to find that site?

    If it's legit, it's a pretty smart idea and concept. Can be used in loads of things.

    Wow @ all time. Man I want this script so bad. Probably charge me thousands. Probably ain't even for sale.

    That's very cool. Wonder if anyone here could develop something similar...

    Clever and impressive script
    Sad and disturbing number of people using all the different slurs, however.
    If ever there's a mandatory human culling, they should start with all the people featured on that site. :p

    That's not a terribly complicated site. On the back end. So to speak. No pun intended.

    But it looks like they are using the streaming API, which is something you only get access to if Twitter deems your project worthy. The regular API is rate limited, which would prevent real-time updating like that.
