An archive of OH tweets
It's a collection of "overhead" tweets; tweets that are prefixed with "OH:", and generally contain a funny sentence someone has overheard.
The site uses Fuel as its base. I'd not used Fuel before, I usually stick with CodeIgniter, so it was interesting to see how it differed. I think I prefer it, and I'll be using it again.
I used Phirehose to connect to the Twitter streaming API, which was very easy to use and definitely made the job easier.
Once I was collecting tweets, I had to filter them. I only saved tweets that had "OH: " at the start and didn't contain any links. To filter out all the non english ones (although some do slip through), I check the language using Microsoft Translator API.
And off it goes, collecting tweets and displaying them. Check it out!
